Preparing for a hospital stay

There’s always some anxiety when you are preparing for a hospital stay. But knowing what’s ahead and how to prepare can help you feel better about things. At Placentia-Linda Hospital, we want to do our part by offering several resources that should make that easier 

Here you’ll find directions to the hospital, information on what to expect, a checklist for what to bring (and what not to bring), a guide to your rights and responsibilities as a patient, and important information on advance directives and other legal documents you may want to prepare before your hospital stay.
