Room & Accommodation Information
After being settled in your room, a member of the nursing staff will ask you questions about your current illness, your previous medical history, any special needs or physical limitations you may have and any medication you are currently taking, as well as potential care needs at home after you are discharged.
We know you may have been asked these questions already by Admitting but it is important that your nurse also ask these questions. The nurse will write down your answers, which will then go into your medical record. This information is designed to help all of the health care professionals who will be involved in your care.
Your room is assigned based upon your admitting diagnosis and bed availability on the day of your admission. Most of our rooms are semi-private*. If you would like a private room, please inform your nurse. Certain patients, due to their illness, may have priority for our limited private rooms. We will do our very best to accommodate you.
If you have any problems with your bed, TV, room temperature or other equipment in your room, please tell your nurse and he/she will contact the proper department or office to correct the situation as soon as possible. During your stay, it may become necessary to move you to a different room based on changing hospital census and varying patient needs. In the event that we need to relocate you, every effort will be made to ensure the transition is as easy as possible.
