Your hospital room

I had a very nice private room in a very fancy hospital. I was very surprised. You should have seen their menu, like a 5 star restaurant - and you could order 24 hours around the clock. Pity I had no appetite. I could not believe how excellent the post-op care was - and the nurses were awesome. I wonder if it depends on the type of insurance one has or where you live? I was expecting to share a room - but having my own was really nice.

I shared a room. She was 3 months pregnant and in the hospital for a severe asthma attack. I was her third roomate in a week. I felt bad leaving her behind...but she did get the word she could go home, as I departed to go home.

I had a private room in the OB ward. Very nice, quiet, and my nurses were great. Sorry to hear that some of you had such a bad experience.

I love this thread. I have wanted to talk about this for a while.

I had read so many posts on here about getting a private room that I came with credit card in hand on the day of my surgery. Then in all the excitement of getting "checked-in" - I forgot to ask. After I got the the pre-op area, I asked the - because I had been previously told that they handle that. NOT.

No big deal. "Mother of the Year" was on the case. She went to admitting and asked. They told her "Oh, with the type of surgery that she is having, she'll be on the Women's Surgery Wing. All the rooms are private." My hero comes in with the news and we all celebrated the fact that we would not be disturbing others (my family and friends declared a national holiday and all came to the hospital).

So, I had been reading about the 24 hour visiting hours and the "AT YOUR REQUEST Room Service Dining" and was very excited. I am a plus size sister so eating is something that I had specialized in . Keep in mind that with a light diet to prep for my bowel prep, I had not had any GREAT food in 3 days. So I really wanted to take advangtage of this food program.

I get to my room and it is fabulous!!! Fold out couch that becomes a really comfy - my mom stayed the entire time (2 days turned into 5). Private bathroom with - ok so what I was too out of it to enjoy any of this great stuff.

Because I had a very difficult time passing and they had knicked my bladder in surgery - I didn't get to take advantage of the Room Service until the 5th day. Up until then, I was on liquid diet. Veggie broth for breakfast - YUMMO. Let me just say - my hospital had GREAT If I had been there for any other surgery, they may have had a hard time getting me to leave. But by the time I was able to order, I really couldn't eat much, so I shared with my visitors.

Ok, Ok, I'll shut up now. I was just stunned by this whole thing because I have had surgery before at other hospitals and it was NOTHING like this (room or food).

I had a private room...didn't ask for it, just got it, but my insurance charged me extra for it, $170 for a 3 night stay.

I think I was also on an OB floor, or a least I only saw a few other patients, all women, and I dont recall seeing anything but private rooms when I finally got out and wandered the hall!

I have wondered if I should bring this up with the insurance company or just leave it alone...since there were only private rooms how could they charge me extra?

My room was on the OB post partum floor but private and very nice all the rooms were recently remodeled and I had a flat screen plasma TV on the wall with a full sofa bed for my husband to sleep on and he stated it was very comfortable. I got to order from a menu (even though I couldnt eat anything but liquids). The selections were awesome. I was very impressed and at night it was very quiet and I only heard babies crying mostly in the morning but nothing that bothered me. Before I went in I told the admitting department I wanted a private room and she stated all the rooms are private and you will love them and she was right! I felt like a while I was there and the nurses were awesome.

My DH is retired air force so I had my TVH in a military hospital. I had a private room but it had the bare necessities. The only bathroom was down the hall and it was unisex. We had a sign that we put on the door to let everyone know if a male or female was inside.
No, it wasn't much to look at but it was comfortable and served the purpose. The main thing was that the nurses, doctors and everyone involved were the best. I received great care and the young GI nurses were awesome.
Oh, and I got my bill for the surgery this week. A grand total of $33.30.

I had a private room with my own bathroom. I was SO sick in the days after the surgery, I couldn't imagine going through that with a roomate.

I was on a floor with people recovering from all sorts of surgery. I'm glad it wasn't an OB floor - I wouldn't have wanted to be around pregnant women.
