Your hospital room

Hi Hystersisters!

When I checked in at the hospital, I was pleasantly surprised when they said I would have my own hospital room after surgery. They said everyone who is a patient there, because of the privacy act, now gets their own room for their hospital stay. My hospital stay was very quiet and everyone on the floor was quiet too.

I've been in other hospitals for previous surgeries and I always had a roommate. The roommates were always nice to chat with, but sometimes there was so much traffic in and out of the room, it was hard to rest!!!

I've read here and there on this website, some of you mentioning a roommate during your hospital stay.

Did most of you have your own room or did you have a roommate, in the hospital you stayed in for this surgery?

Take care. Best wishes for your healing........

Hugs, Irish Bridie

I had a roommate after my hysterectomy, but it was six years ago. I had a colectomy the following year, which was a much more major surgery, and had a private room after that.

I do think there is a trend recently towards hospitals having more and more private rooms.

Immediately after my surgery I was "put" in a room with two other patients in a regular ward, as there was not a bed for me on the women's health floor. Eventually, after 24 hours, they managed to find a bed for me ( a single room with a second bed crammed in) on the appropriate floor. The hospital was organized enough to call me fours days prior to my surgery to tell me I was scheduled to be hospitilized for three days for a room fee in excess of $10,000. However, they couldn't manage to reserve a bed for me.

I had to request a private room. It was actually a room set up for three people, and until I was ready to go home one day later, I had it to myself. Now the room to have was the one IndoPrincess had in Jakarta. If you find her posts, she had a private room with a mini bar! We all want that room! How are you doing with your surgery?

Most of the rooms at our local hospital are private rooms. It was nice to not have a roomate.

I had a private room in the OB ward but I was pampered because I work in the NICU dept. I knew all my nurses and was really treated like a princess

Technically, I would guess my room is considered a "semi-private" room, but my room mate and I were divided by the bathroom. So, in a sense, we each had our own little rooms.

All the rooms at the hospital I was in had private rooms. It was very nice and it allowed my DH to stay with me the entire time. And right after surgery I was throwing up so bad I wouldn't have wanted strangers in there to see or hear that.

I had a private room, my husband had a bed there and was able to stay with me as well. It was really nice, they had free pay-per-view type movies and a satellite. The food was really good, it was just like ordering room service, I got to choose from the menu and just called it in whenever I wanted something. I was lucky however that I was not put on diet restrictions it may have been different otherwise, I'm not sure. It was actually rather a pleasant experience, aside from getting organs taken out lol. They treated me as if I was in a really nice hotel, perhaps the gift basket was a good idea lol.

I've never had a reason before to mention this but now that you surgery actually was not in a hospital but a free standing surgery center. They do have an inpatient unit but the majority of the surgeries done there are outpatient. At my pre-op appt my doc told me the rooms at the center are nicer than in her house. Well, I doubt that but I did have a private room that had a chair that converted to a 'bed' for my daughter to sleep in for my overnight stay. I have had many surgeries at hospitals and this was my first experience with a surgery center but honestly once I was in pre-op from then until discharge I never saw a difference from environment to staff to food to technology or any other aspect, it was all fine. Not the best I have ever had but it was okay.
