During your stay in the hospital, you will have a wardrobe where you can store your clothes and any personal items you may need. Please bring all your own hygiene items with you: bath soap, cologne, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shaving utensils, etc.
Patients at the Institut Guttmann do not wear the characteristic “hospital pyjamas”. This is part of the rehabilitation process, where the patient is not a sick person but someone who actively participates and is fully involved in their rehabilitation and in carrying out activities of daily living.
Therefore, we recommend you bring the most comfortable clothes possible, such as tracksuits or similar, cotton underwear, jumpers, sports shoes (1 or 2 sizes larger than usual and preferably with Velcro), scarves, etc. Please mark items with your name and surname(s) so they can be identified if lost.
Your friends and relatives should be responsible for washing your personal clothing. The hospital has a laundry service open from 9 am to 9 pm.
If you are an outpatient, there are lockers with a key in the Functional Rehabilitation Area where you can store your clothes and any personal items. It is advisable to bring a complete change of clothes.
