More than a soothing environment.
Single hospital rooms at Monmouth Medical Center South make the difference
in patient wellness, from improving healing and enhancing the patient
experience, to increasing infection control, and making your care more
At Monmouth South, our single rooms promote patient healing by easing the
stress of a hospital stay. A clustered layout means you won’t be
able to see or hear what’s going on in anyone else’s space
– giving you more time to rest, relax, and recuperate. Each room
features comfortable recliners and plenty of room for relatives and friends
to stop by and share a laugh – nature’s best medicine. And,
on our geriatric floor, low-height beds and alarms greatly reduce the
risk for falls.
Removing the roommate significantly reduces your risk of acquiring infections
from other patients, and a sink by each bedside – in addition to
the one in each private bathroom – allows medical personnel to wash
their hands thoroughly before examining you. The wood-finish look of the
floors in each room add class, while the fact that they’re made
of sheet vinyl, means they’re easy to keep clean. DuPont™
Corian® sink tops, windowsills, and other room surfaces are nonporous,
stain-resistant, and simple to disinfect.
A bigger area around your bed means better accessibility for physicians
and nurses, who can perform minor procedures and exams without time-consuming
transfers, and – once they’ve finished –you can dim
the room’s lights to your liking. The room’s quiet and private
design also erases embarrassment about sharing personal details with a
Finally, a single room means you’ll have a physician or nurse’s
full attention every time you need it. They’ll have plenty of time
to check your chart and collaborate for your best possible care in our
newly designed teamwork areas on each floor – no more jockeying
for a seat at the nurse’s station. And, with our new telemetry system,
your vital signs will be monitored not only by a nurse on your floor,
but also by staff in a remote location – allowing us to respond
immediately if you need our help.
Patients will not incur additional charges for a single room.
Even More Benefits for Older Patients.
Monmouth Medical Center South is the only hospital in the area with a one-stop
health program for older adults, where single rooms and hotel-like amenities
are only a small part of a first-class experience. From our Acute Care
for the Elderly Unit (ACE) for the most frail of our older patients, to our
Better Health senior membership program and Geriatrics Institute, we offer the finest
care, most advanced treatments and a healing environment designed for
quick recovery and prevention of complicating illnesses.
