Hospital Packing List: Items to consider bringing with you…

Items to consider bringing with you to make your trip more comfortable…

Note, this is an “over-the-top” comprehensive list.  I purchased a few items in Delhi from either Khan Market, Green Park Market, or Defense Colony Market.  I am storing many items in a container left at the hospital for my return trips.

Sewing kit

Matches (purchase in Delhi)


Candles (I like a little ambiance in my room)

Bread board (purchase in Delhi)

Large knife

Paring knife

Can opener


2 mugs (purchase in Delhi)

drinking glasses (purchase in Delhi)


Face washer

Tea towel

Dish washing detergent (purchase in Delhi)

Dish washing brush

Laundry detergent (purchase in Delhi)

Emergency pack for diarrhea

Delhi Travel Guides

Delhi Map (locate one in Delhi–the Paper Shop at Khan has them for FREE)

Dove Soap – 1 bar

Refresh Eye tears

Hand sanitizer

Several packages of Backpacker’s Pantry Outdoor Gourmet food or Cuppa Soups when you tire of the menu at the hospital
