Your Room

Hospital beds are electrically operated, and your nurse will show you how to operate your bed properly. Your hospital bed is probably higher and narrower than your bed at home, therefore, bedrails have been provided for your protection. Bedrails will be up while you are resting in bed.  If your room temperature is not comfortable, please notify your nurse. Room temperature can be controlled individually to meet your comfort.
