Things Not to Bring

Some common items should not be brought with you when visiting the hospital:

  • Latex Balloons
    Latex balloons are a choking hazard, and can trigger strong reactions in children with latex allergies. Mylar balloons make a great alternative and are available in the gift shop.
  • Flowers
    Flowers can cause strong allergic reactions in some patients just by being near them.
