Think patient here should be able to bring in there own personal efects. like toothbrush, underwears, pillows ,sanitary pads and others things that they get free. and it is not given them the articles but they just throw them away or leave them around after they leave. We have to throw them away because they were used and not taken home. This is money that is going to waste. I worked in Puerto Rico asanurse for 30 years and over there the first thing you do when going to a hospital is prepare a bag with all your personal efects to be use. There are some patient who don't have the means but they should be the minimal.
