Your Personal Belongings

Personal Valuables
Patients are advised to leave personal belongings and valuables such as cash, jewellery and mobile phones at home. Sengkang General Hospital shall not be held liable or responsible for the loss or damage of any valuables or personal items during a patient’s stay. Patients and their caregivers who bring valuables to the hospital do so at their own risk. To avoid property loss, we recommend that you bring only essential items to the hospital, such as a list of medications that they are taking, and simple toiletries.

Valuables Kept by You
Please inform our nurses if you are retaining the use of valuables such as spectacles, dentures, hearing aids and mobile phones. To prevent loss or damage to these valuables, you are advised not to leave these items unattended / unprotected on meal trays, beds, bedsides, lockers, shower rooms, and any places where they may be lost or accidentally thrown out.

Valuables Kept by SKH
If required, our nurses will safe-keep your items in a sealed and secured envelope during your stay with us. A form will be signed by you, the nurse who secures the valuables, and another nurse who will act as a witness. The valuables will be returned to you upon your discharge and / or request by your next-of-kin (NOK).
