Hi to all,

Another trivial question. (I keep thinking of this stuff, but don't know who else to ask.)

Last week when I was in the hospital for my anemia and shortness of breath, the temperature in my room was a lot warmer than I'm used to. (I'm one of those people who sleep with a fan on in the middle of winter.)

I have a small (very small) desk fan that I bought for work, and I was wondering if I could bring it to the hosptial for my surgery with me. It doesn't take up much room at all, but does cool pretty well.

Has anyone else tried this?

Hi there! Sounds like a good idea to me, but you better check with the hospital first. Sometimes they have strict rules about certain electrical devices.

Yes, I would just give the hospital a call and ask about their policies.
Will you have a private room? If so you will probably have your own thermostat. I did and it was nice.
Good luck.

I work in a hospital and have been a member of the safety committee. We have strict rules about anything brought into a hospital must be URL approved and checked out by the engineering department. We do have fans available for patients in our central supply, you might want to check that. Also, if your fan were battery powered there wouldn't be an issue.

Good luck!! Stay cool!

While I was at the castle they gave me a fan for my room. You may want to inquire if they have any and then you wouldn't have to bring your own. Even though you may have your own thermostat you may not want colder air just air that is moving around. Good luck and best wishes. Dosi
