Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital
& Research Center
Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital offers five types of rooms: general ward, semi-private (two beds), private and Deluxe, suite. Bed assignments are based upon availability.
We cannot guarantee that your request will be met when you arrive. However, we will do everything possible to arrange your requested accommodation during your stay.
Your hospital bed is equipped with controls to regulate its height and to raise and lower the head and feet positions. Because your medical condition can affect your balance and mobility, side rails may be temporarily placed in the "up" position.
Please do not try to get out of bed by yourself if the rails are elevated or if your physician has requested you remain in bed. Once your physician has approved that you may leave your bed, please ask for help in getting in or out of bed if you are weak or unsteady on your feet.
A nurse call button is located at your bedside. Simply push this button when you need assistance and a member of your nursing team will come to your room or respond through the intercom at the nurses’ station.
You may be transferred from one room to another or from one floor to another. This may occur because of your medical needs, to accommodate another patient’s medical needs, or upon your personal request. Such moves will be handled as efficiently and conveniently as possible for you.
