My great aunt has been in and out of the hospital for several weeks.
- It’s been pretty difficult because the hospital staff is having difficulty diagnosing her illness.
I am sure that the whole process has been trying on her mind, body, and soul. I have been going to see her about every other day since I work near the hospital. One of the things I can’t stand about going to see her is that the hospital air conditioning is way over the top. It brings back bad memories of how chilly the air conditioning was in the hospital when my grandpa was dying. My great aunt hates it and asks the nurse every single day to adjust the thermostat. Her nurse consistently tells her no, because the a/c has to be set at a particular temperature for the entire hospital. It is impossible to change the personal temperature control in each room. Perhaps the hospital should invest in zone controlled heating and air. They should also implement smart temperature controls so that the patients can have access to the thermostat from their bed, since some of them are immobile. I suppose this might be very expensive for the hospital, so instead, I bring my great aunt extra blankets that she can use to get as warm as she needs to get. I entirely hope that they find the cause of her condition soon, because this is a trying situation for me and my great-aunt.
