Release of Information

What to Bring

To promote a more comfortable stay, there are items we encourage patients to bring with them upon admission. As we strive to provide a secure environment, there are certain items that are not allowed on our inpatient units. Lists of both acceptable and unacceptable items are below.

As with all elements of your stay, Inland Northwest Behavioral Health staff is available to assist you. If there is an item you’d like to bring that doesn’t appear on the lists below, a member of our staff can let you know whether or not it is an acceptable item.

The following information is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and the list is subject to change. If you have any questions, please call us at 509-992-1888. Inland Northwest Behavioral Health is not responsible for misplaced items or valuables.

This is not an inclusive or exclusive list of items permitted in our communities at INBH.

  • Four days of comfortable clothes and nightclothes with no draw strings, including outdoor coverings (strings will be cut if needed)
  • Your own shoes, slippers without laces (we will provide ties)
  • Your hair brushes
  • Unframed pictures (limited number)
  • Wire free notebooks, journals for writing
  • Bedding items (e.g. pillows, blankets)
  • All electrical or battery operated devices
