Medical (general)
French term or phrase: inventaire des effets et valeurs
This is the name of a form signed on admission to hospital. The form 'depot d'objets de valeur' is mentioned in the same sentence.

It is 'valeurs' that I am having trouble with. Would it be money/cash, by association with 'assets'?

Any help would be much appreciated!

You could put it as 'valuables including cash-see note from franglish below- to make it more precise.

Could it be that one form is just to say that a patient has deposited some valuable objects (such as jewellery) but doesn't list them and the other form is an inventory of what has actually been deposited and also includes personal effects and cash. You could say something like 'there is a form to complete if you have valuable objects to deposit and an inventory of these valuables, including cash and personal effects' or something like that......

Notes to answerer
Asker: My problem is that 'valeurs' must differ from 'objets de valeurs' in the name of the other form...

Asker: The sentence doesn't give any more context, I'm afraid: "Il s'agit d'un formulaire de "depot d'objets de valeur' et d'un 'inventaire des effets et valeurs' ".
