Private room (?)

I go do Pre-ops and register on Monday. I've never had a private room . Do you ask for one and pay the difference of what the insurance pays? I had a reaction to the morphine drip after my TAH and keep the poor lady next to me up all night. I felt so bad, but then she got me back the next day by having 1000 visitors it seemed . The bathroom was on her side so I had to walk past them . Yep I think I will look into this private room thing! LOL Anyone have any info about it?????

Private room (?)

I'm interested in how long you get to stay???for what exact procedure?? lots of these procedures now-a-days are out patient which I believe is a whole insurance issue but that's a whole nother post

You could probably call the 800 number on the back of your insurance card and talk with a rep. I will warn you though some of them are less than intelligent in there jobs so be sure to get a name etc and maybe even call back and confirm the answer you receive.

Were they able to calm down your reaction last time, I had the same thing happen with the meds they gave me in a pump with my last c-section but they gave me something that kicked the yuckies away immediately. It knocked me out for about 6 hours but ya know sometimes we could use a little anyway!

I ask for private room


I always ask for a private room. I get it if there is one available. At the hospital I'm going to you can't get in the queue for a private room until you actually arrive at the hospital. For my hyster I had a semi-private for the first night and then was moved to a private room. And yes, I paid the difference in price.

I asked for a private room pre-admission as I get terribly sick from anaesthetic. I had a private room my first 2 nights then was moved to a semi-private for my final night (the private room was needed for a terminally ill patient.) I have to say, the private room was wonderful with its own bathroom...!

I paid the difference in cost on both rooms and am waiting for reimbursement from my insurance company - they should cover about 1/2.

Cindy Lou,
I think it will depend on your insurance company. When I had my last lap the doc was going to keep me overnight and I requested a private room. It was worth my privacy and sanity to pay the difference.

Private room (?)

I stayed 2 nights with my hyst and was in a private room both nights. Was told I would have to pay the difference because my insurance wouldn't cover. It was worth it to me. However, as it ended up I was never billed extra for it. Hope you have an uneventful stay at the castle.

Private room (?)

depending on your state of mind...
I asked to be placed in the maternity ward: private room, nicer nurses, my own bathroom, babies crying as opposed to alzheimers patients screaming, definately more pleasent surroundings.
Just my opinion, I understand some women have a hard time due to reproductive issues.
I am so glad I was in maternity.
