Transitional Belongings Bags
Transitional Belongings Bags offer an alternative to plastic belongings bags used in healthcare when handing over and transferring patients’ belongings. Our art-inspired belongings bags constructed of non-woven soft textured polypropylene offer a compassionate alternative to plastic bags and are reusable. Transitional Belongings Bags are eco-friendly and can replace single-use plastic bags within patient services decreasing plastic waste generated.
Transitional Belongings Bags are designed specifically for hospital and in-patient hospice use to transfer personal belongings to the family after a patient has passed away. Our Bags are a sustainable alternative to plastic bags as patients transfer to various locations throughout the hospital admission, testing, and discharge. The “Pair of Cardinals” graphic is designed from original artwork. These beautiful birds are symbolic, legendary, and carry spiritual beliefs.
Bags are environmentally friendly and constructed of 80 gsm 100% non-woven polypropylene. Each bag features reinforced 26” handles with hook and loop closure on the top center. Dimensions are 15” H x 20” W x 5 3/4” D. An optional durable label that adheres to the belongings bag is available. Labels include patient name, room number, and bag return date. Labels are removable. If utilizing an asset tracking solution, a property barcode can be attached to the belongings bag.
Additional bag sizes are available upon request. Co-branding is available for Transitional Belongings Bags, Door Hangers, and Sympathy Cards.
Door hangers placed on the outside door of patients’ rooms indicate a patient is imminently approaching death. The door hangers encourage staff and visitors to observe silence in the immediate area. The door hanger was designed using original artwork of “Birch Trees in the Forest.” Hangers are printed on sturdy 14-pt card stock, 4” x 11” with a glossy UV coating front and uncoated back.
Sympathy cards can be placed in Transitional Belongings Bags for family or mailed as bereavement follow-up. Cards are 5.5″ x 4″ Folded – Standard matte. Sympathy cards and door hangers are available in Spanish.
Include a Memory Garden Seed Packet, along with a sympathy card to the Transitional Belongings Bag when handing over a patient’s belongings. Family members can create a beautiful wildflower garden in memory of their loved ones.
