- by GLORIAmunchkin72 Sep 15, '12How long are visitors expected to wait outside the door before they can visit a resident?
Scenario: Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Black are roommates. Mrs. Black has the bed next to the window away from the door and Mrs. Smith has the first bed. Mrs. Black has visitors waiting outside but they cannot come in yet because Mrs. Smith is being taken to the bathroom. They waited a few minutes but now Mrs. Smith decided that she also wants to get ready for bed and a few minutes turn into half an hour. Is this right?

- Sep 15, '12 by casiThis is why there are curtains and bathroom doors.

It's never easy sharing a room, but there are always workable solutions.
- Sep 16, '12 by woohWould Mrs. Black want to be seen by Mrs. Smith's visitors while she's getting ready for bed?
