Patient Rooms

Room Amenities at University Hospitals MacDonald Women's Hospital Provide Convenience and Comfort

UH MacDonald Women's Hospital staff is dedicated to ensuring a patient’s stay at our hospital is as comfortable as possible. Individuals have access to a number of services from the convenience of their private room.

Skylight TV and Internet Service

Our Skylight Access Interactive Television System is a free service that allows you to watch cable television and movies on demand, play games and access the Internet, all on the television in your room. The system also provides important patient education and information about the hospital. Use the Skylight remote control attached to your bed to navigate the system. To access the Internet, ask your nurse for a wireless keyboard. For instructions and a channel directory, please refer to the guide on your nightstand.

Call Light

Each patient bed is equipped with a call light that allows you to request help from the nursing staff. Once you press the light, the unit secretary will answer your call, assess the urgency of your need or question, and get you an answer or the help you need as soon as possible. Some call lights are part of the remote control, some are part of the bed and some are attached to the bed by a cord. Your nurse can explain how to operate your call light.
