Preparing for Your Stay
The length of your stay at the EMU depends on the time needed to monitor your seizure activity. Although this varies among patients, the average length of stay is usually three days. Since spending three days on the monitoring unit can be boring, feel free to bring any books, cards, board games, or something to help fill the time. Each room is equipped with a telephone and television.
If you prefer, you can bring items such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, and hand cream. Do not bring any valuables with you. Remember that this is a non-smoking campus, but we can prescribe a nicotine replacement product if medically needed.
