Your Room

ROOM ASSIGNMENTS

Room assignments at UMC New Orleans are based upon the admitting diagnosis and the bed availability on the day of admission.

YOUR HOSPITAL BED

Hospital beds can be adjusted by using the controls. Should you need assistance, please call your nurse. We ask that visitors not sit on your bed to keep outside germs off your sheets to prevent infection 

ROOM TEMPERATURE

All rooms in the hospital are centrally heated and air conditioned. If the temperature is not comfortable, please notify your nurse. 

CALLING YOUR NURSE

A nurse call button is located on each patient’s bedside. When the button is pressed, the nursing station is alerted that you need assistance, and a light flashes above your door. A staff member will respond to your signal as soon as possible.

TELEVISION

Television sets are provided free of charge in each room. The remote control is at bedside. Please be considerate of other patients by playing TV sets softly and by turning off your set at bedtime.
