I'm not sure what it's called, but there's supposed to be a way to check in so that the staff isn't able to share your room information or whether you're even at the hospital.

Did anyone do this?

I didn't understand what they were asking when they asked me if I had a reason to be private and I thought with HIPAA, they wouldn't be able to give out my room number but apparently they did.

Did you ask to be checked in privately? Did it work out?
