Personal Items

It is suggested that patients have no more than four (4) changes of clothing, including what the patient is wearing. Please label all clothing with a marker or laundry tape.

Personal property (including clothing and money) is accepted between the hours of 7 AM and 7 PM daily.

Clothing and items brought in for an individual become their responsibility. Clothing and items brought for an individual must be inspected and labeled. These items are searched in the Crisis Department prior to being sent to the unit. After visiting hours these items will be made available.


Visitors may give money directly to the person they are visiting during regular visiting hours. We ask that the amount be limited to $15 per day. Money brought in Monday to Friday between 8 AM and 4 PM will be available to the patient the same day. It is otherwise deposited in the patient safe and made available the next business day.


Please understand that because of short stays, mail and parcels may not arrive before discharge.

Our mailing address is:

MCES is not responsible for any items lost or stolen, for items left more than 30 days after discharge, for clothing that could be damaged by washing, or for items kept by the patient.
