    Happy to oblige. Here is what I could manage: If you are in charge of the staff at a party, you might want to say that to one of your subordinates because you cannot go check the cloakroom yourself and, needless to say, you don't want anything to get lost!

    So there. There might be better scenarios, but that's what I could come up with.

    Re: general question

    I see what you're getting at but I can't quite imagine what this member of staff is going to check for in the cloakroom. When he/she walks into the cloakroom it won't be possible to tell of anything has already gone missing/been lost and, unless you expect him/her to stay in the cloakroom for the rest of the evening, it won't be possible to check that nothing gets lost before the end of the party.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
