The letter must confirm the mobility impairment, and/or the nature of the medically implanted or prosthetic device and its specific location in/on the body, and the need for any assistive device.
Visitors with a temporary medically implanted or prosthetic device(s) shall be required to renew the verification letter, as described in subsection 3173.2(e)(1), every two years.

VSP does not provide wheelchairs or other assistive devices.  There is not transportation from Visiting Processing to the Visiting Room.

If you have a cast or ace bandage wrap you do need a doctor's note.
