Your Room

Your room assignment is based on your admitting diagnosis and the bed availability on the day of your admission. Private (single bed) and semi-private (two bed) rooms are available. Medical insurance usually does not cover the full cost of a private room. (Refer to "Hospital Bills and Insurance" section.)

Visitor Comfort
RMC offers a large number of private rooms. Available on each unit are a varied number of recliner chairs. These will be provided as they become available to visitors who stay all night. Due to limited space in semi-private rooms, recliners are only available in private rooms.

There is no cost for this service. Local and area telephone service is also provided at no additional cost. If you need information on placing long distance calls, this is available on each telephone. The telephone service begins at 6:30 a.m. and ends at 10 p.m. Area Calling is available to many areas. Contact the hospital operator by dialing "O" to verify that your exchange is included.

Color television sets are provided free of charge in each room. Please be considerate of other patients by playing TV sets softly and by turning off your set at bedtime.

Your Hospital Bed
Because you'll spend much of your recovery time in bed, we want you to be as comfortable as possible. The nurse will show you how to operate the controls to adjust the height, foot, or head of your bed. There may be times, though, that adjustments cannot be made due to a medical condition.

Room Temperature
All rooms in the hospital are centrally heated and air conditioned. Please notify the nursing staff if your room temperature is uncomfortable.

Calling Your Nurse
A button to call your nurse is located at your bedside. When you press the button, the nursing station is alerted that you need assistance and a light flashes on above your door. A staff member will respond to your signal as soon as possible.
