Fortunately, just about all of the hospitals here have remodeled or are new, and have only private rooms. It's wonderful. I don't want anyone around when I'm really sick - not friends, not family, my husband only for very short visits. I certainly don't want a room mate to bug me with questions and conversation.

When I go into the hospital they put me in a GI-ward and most of the rooms there have double beds with a single bathroom; everyone there has a severe digestive disorder and they share a bathroom..... they also have private rooms for people that request them or need to be quarantined. I was quarantined because of was very nice having a private room with a bathroom.

The only time I was in the hospital, I got lucky. My roommate was a poor, elderly woman who was out of her mind and totally bedfast. No competition for the bathroom and she rarely had visitors, bless her heart. The only problem was she was always yanking her IV out, which would set off an alarm that would carry on until a nurse came to fix it. A couple of times, I had to call a nurse for her when it went on and on with no response.

i got a private room in the hospital on the grounds that it would be unfair to my roommate for not ever being able to use the toilet as i would be in there 21 out of 24 hours a day.
