Saint Vincent Hospital understands that a hospital stay can be a disruption from your daily life, away from the comforts of home that you’re accustomed to. That’s why we make sure our hospital rooms are as comfortable as possible, equipped with the things you’ll need to make your stay both safe and enjoyable.

What to expect in your hospital room?

When you arrive for inpatient treatment at Saint Vincent Hospital, you will be assigned a room. The following are answers to some of the most frequent questions patients have about their hospital accommodations.

How is my room assigned?

Your accommodations at Saint Vincent Hospital will be either a private or semiprivate room, which one will depend on your diagnosis and bed availability when you’re admitted.

What equipment or furniture will my room have?

Every hospital room is equipped with appropriate medical devices. Many also have:

  • Televisions
  • Radios
  • Adjustable beds
  • Oxygen outlets
  • The patient education channel
  • Call bell system

The staff will show you how to use the equipment when you arrive.

What if my room is too cold, or becomes messy?

All rooms have individual thermostats to control room temperature. Housekeeping service is provided daily. If you need additional housekeeping services, please ask a staff member to contact housekeeping for you.

Can I leave my room whenever I want?

Please don’t leave your bed or chair without assistance. Your medical condition could make you unsteady. Call for help even if you think you don’t need it. It is important that the staff know where you are at all times. If you leave the unit, please inform your nurse and sign out with the secretary. It is also necessary to sign back in when you return.

Will I have a telephone in my room?

There are phones at every bedside for your use. We ask that you identify one spokesperson from your family for our staff to speak with about your condition to avoid multiple calls or privacy issues.
