Nurse smiling at patient in bed

Your nurse or patient care tech will perform hourly rounding during your hospital stay. That means one of them will come to your room every hour. At that time, they will assess your pain and assist you with your bathroom needs, positioning and anything else you may need. During the night, your nurse or patient care tech will continue checking on you hourly. They will try to avoid waking you up except when your vital signs need to be assessed.
