In brief: Hospital= poor sleep

Being in the hospital interferes with normal sleep patterns.
The lights are on, there are buzzers and bells and nurses and others entering the room at all times of the day and night, in telemetry you have wires attached to you. Sleep is poorer for everyone in the hospital.

especially when there are staff members who forget that sleep is an integral part of the healing process

i agree wholeheartedly, this includes the night owl physicians that see patients at night.

Sleeping in the hospital is difficult as there are numerous noises and interruptions.
