The ordinary shelter with greater hotel comfort

The patient with reservation for ordinary hospitalisation, when entering the hospital, may request the conditions of greater hotel comfort (subject to the availability of the bed, to be checked at the time) in a room with 1 or 2 beds with bathroom, television and telephone.

For greater comfort, there is a "first class" hospitalisation (the room is available to only one patient and a family member can also stay overnight) and a "second class" (there are two patients in the room). For patients assisted by the SSN, they are charged the only fee established by the Institution for the greater comfort of the hotel, differentiated according to the class of admission.

The admission in the Liberal Profession

It is characterized by the choice of the professional or the team (who practice the freelance profession within the walls) which concerns the patient wishes to be treated and takes place on the basis of a dedicated waiting list.

  • in a room with greater hotel comfort. The financial burden on the patient, for this type of hospitalisation, includes the fee of the specialist or the chosen team, a percentage of the regional rate (DRG) fixed for that type of clinical-surgical hospitalization and the rate (differentiated according to the 'class' of accommodation chosen) for greater comfort hotel
