Patient Room Assignment
Your room assignment at Munroe is based on your admitting
diagnosis and bed availability on the day of your admission. While we
try to honor each patient's request for a private room, other
arrangements may be necessary due to occupancy, physician's orders or
the nature of your condition.
Munroe's private patient rooms are designed for patient comfort, family comfort, and ease of doctors and nurses providing care for the patient. Each new room has a bed, laminate wood floors, decorations, lamps, table, television, an ergonomic reclining chair and the latest medical technology.
Every room has four zones: As you enter a patient room, there is a staff zone that consists of a staff charting area used to administer patient care.
The patient zone is set apart by designs in the flooring to keep this important area clean, so a patient can receive visitors without anything blocking the way. The headboard for each patient bed includes a power column that consolidates equipment into one convenient location.
The family zone area contains a chair that conveniently converts into a bed, a table with a phone and a lamp. The area has also been designed with space for flowers and cards the patient may receive.
The fourth zone is the hygiene zone, positioned at the back of the room for ease of room entry and for patient privacy.
