Dad is in a new bed. the hospital had just unwrapped it prior to Dad’s admission. It is computerized , it roates positions every 10 minutes. Every two hours it vibrates(like a jack-hammer) for 10 minutes for the pneumonia. The care deponds on which nurse is on and he has his favorites. Because eye contact is all he has he gets nervous when he can’t see someone. Some of the nurses have deemed him demanding. Others are very attentive and he is more relaxed when they tell him everything. Other monitors will beep and he questions “is that me?” He is becoming more settled.
