??? About private room

Until recently I never thought about not having a private room... I just assumed that I would have one. So recently I was reading a thread that made me think about it. So I did some research on the hospital I am going to go to. Well I couldn't find that how many double rooms that they had but I did find out that a lot of wealthy people go to this hospital. So for $200 a night I could have a private suite, special treatment from doctors, and a suite that was compared to a 5 star hotel and a chef that cooks food to order for me and 1 guest. But I don't need all that I just want my own room. But my question is how many people had private rooms?

Orangekitten,

Get the private room, no matter the cost. I did not have a private room, I just assumed they were all private rooms and it was only when I woke up that I discovered a roommate. I had complications and had trouble with my bowels on top of that, so they gave me milk of magnesia. It was totally humiliating when that stuff kicked in and my roommate is in her bed with guests and only a curtain to separate us. My doctor was also furious that they did not put me in a private room, because my roommate had people coming in constantly to visit. I did finally after 3 days get a private room thanks my doctor. Hope this helps with your decision. Take care

I have never had a hospital even question whether I would have a private room or not. I have had a suite. My insurance covers my room no matter the size, etc. I am so thankful for that!

Re: ??? About private room

My hospital has converted to all private rooms, so that wasn't an issue for me. I got little enough rest with the nurses coming in and the blood pressure cuff and the leg compressors, and I was grateful to be able to sleep and have quiet when I needed it. That would have been worth paying for, although I did just fine without a chef or guest bed.

Re: ??? About private room

I didn't even think about what type of room I would have had, this was the first time I was ever in the hospital as my children were adopted. I did have a private room, but, the funny thing is it was in the pediatric department. Apparently, when the surgical unit gets full they put the overfull of surgical patients in the pediatric area. This didn't bother me tho, there wasn't alot of patients in that area and I didn't mind being near the kids. I was there 2 nights and didn't have any problems. I did have one nurse that was rather rude, and pushing me to do more than I could do, but, luckily that was just a few hours one day and she wasn't back. Several of my nurses were actually OB nurses, so things were different for them having me there too.

Re: ??? About private room

I am definitely in favor of a private room. The hospital I was in places gyn patients on the OB wing. It was very nice and private. I had some trouble peeing after the surgery and it was nice to be able to sit in the bathroom and try to pee as long as I felt the need knowing there was no on else in the room.

Re: ??? About private room

My room was private, and I really appreciated it.

My hospital puts gyn surgery patients on the same floor with the OB ladies and sick children. I suppose if things were really busy, I may have had a roommate, but the area I was in was relatively empty. They told me this is usually the case beforehand, so I didn't have to make any special arrangements nor pay extra for the valuable privacy.

I paid like $20 extra per day for a private room. Based on experiences w/ parents and MIL and FIL I would always say get a private room.

A private room is definitely worth it. After the nurses inquire 27 times whether or not you have passed gas yet, it's great to be alone.

I didn't even ask if it cost extra. Appears it is only $70 more total for the 3 days I was in.

My hospital converted to all private rooms much to my delight. Due to HIPPA laws. I think I would of paid the extra to have a private room if they hadn't done this.
