I am just curious what kind of patient you would be. I have visions of letting the residents cut up my meat. Having the housekeeping actually clean my room. Ear plugs for every patient or at least a machine that provides white noise. Food catered from bruger's bagel for breakfast, and a fancy restaurant for dinner (skip lunch I will be taking a nap).
Actually, I have been a patient more recently than a nurse--I try very hard not to bug anyone unless I really need something. I have even changed my bed linen when able. The only stipulation that I have is that I have a PRIVATE room.
I don't want a screaming roommate to interupt my only time without kids. (LOL) I have had confused elderly roommates that have made the 36$ day worthwhile.

I have been a patient many times in the past year and I think I was a pretty good patient. I didn't call the nurse for stuff I could do myself and I stayed in bed and slept like a good little girl. I tried to cooperate with all they asked me to do and didn't complain about anything.
