Do pt.'s in a in a hospital setting have the right to refuse a room change ? I work on a busy med/surg floor. We were getting two new admits. I was to transfer one of my patients to another room. She was upset and crying, she didn't want to change rooms. The family was also there and were upset this was the second room change in a week. I advocated for her stating she had the right to refuse......to make a long story short the supervisor ripped me a new one and yelled in my face...."This is a hospital, they don't have the right to refuse a room change." Legal opinions on the subject ? Was that a wrong call on my part ?
