I'm wondering if you have recourse through escalating this up through Hospital administration? Maybe a stern message to staff about violation of hospital policy?

I hope Nurse sees this as she may be able to advise whether this is viable.

Sometimes the nurses (depending on the time) aren't at the nurse's station area, they're in other patient rooms. Depending on the number of nurses they have, it's possible the man saw no one. He probably knows his way around the hospital -- many of them do.

RE: Privacy
They go to the hospital quite often to visit a hospitalized friend, to make sure they have Jesus in their heart. I'm finally home and this morning the missus called and asked if I'd like to go to church. She doesn't know when to quit. This has worsened since her mild stroke and it's making it more difficult for me to be kindly toward her. When she learned I wasn't going she went on and on about church programs on tv (we have different satellite providers) and she is continually reminded of that. When younger, this lady was an incredibly kindly person, always helping someone else, cooking for weeks at a time at a kid's camp, fostering children on top of her own 6. She wasn't always like this. I was told she began to change after the death of a 10 yr old son. She's still feeling the pain. This is why dealing with her and hubby is difficult. People who are deeply into religion can be using it to mask depression.
