Thread: Asking diapers at a hospital

  1. #1

    Default Asking diapers at a hospital

    Nurses, or any one in general. Say a person went to a hospital and went in the hospital and asked for a diaper from a nurse and then left. Is there any protocols you have to do before you hand the person a diaper or can you just give the person a diaper? Also, would it be strange to ask for a diaper?

    Default Asking diapers at a hospital

    First of all, I think this topic would be better discussed the diaper talk forum, because I don't immediately see a connection with your topic and this forum.

    Second, it would definitely be weird for you to walk into a hospital just to ask for a diaper and walk out.

    Hospitals aren't pharmacies. Where are you going to even go? The front desk? The emergency department? A floor where you are definitely not a patient on and have no business on?

    Staff members also don't just give out supplies to random people. They usually have people that need the supplies, such as the hundreds of patients in the hospital. So, unless you are a patient and are actually incontinent, you aren't getting one from the hospital.

    Would you walk into the hospital to ask for a cup and leave? No. Because the hospital isn't where you get cups from. The hospital probably has some cups, but people usually go to the store for cups. That's what you should do for diapers. Go to the store.

    The best case scenario if you ask for one is they give you a weird look, ask you the reason you're asking for a diaper, and politely turn you down. Then they'd go tell people about the weirdo that walked in asked for a diaper and left. Worst case scenario they think you're a threat and call security and security politely questions you and ultimately asks you to leave.

    Was this something you were considering?

    Hospitals do not just hand out supplies of any kind without dome kind of medically necessary reason.

    Now if you're admitted then yes you can ask for a hospital diaper- and they will be happy to charge you $20 for it too. They are reallly crappy diapers though, so I highly recommend you bring your own supply if you ever do get admitted.

    Crappy is an understatement. One of the times I was in the psych ward last year I misjudged the length of my stay and was getting close to running out of diapers I brought and checked with the staff to see what they had and ended up having to educate the nurse on why their diaper would have been as effective as Fruit of the Looms at fecal containment. I was going to have my parents pick up a pack of Wellness Superio from the local pharmacy, but then doctor let me know I'd get out the next day so I ended up not completely running out.

    So strange that they'd either call the men in white coats or the police... or just tell you to get lost, if you were lucky.

    Who are you going to ask? A receptionist?!

    I wouldn't try it.

    look at a hospital bill sometime, then if you don't need a diaper ask yourself, "do I want something I'll be billed about 20 dollars for a single prevail diaper (probably more, just a ball park guess)?" Also they might want to cath you if you say you have bladder problems.

    the times I had to stay at a hospital they gave them to me with a second look but I was a patient at that time, I guess if it was not just an over night stay I would have rather been cathed as there diapers suck, they even leak on me and I have the bladder capacity of a 2 year old.
    If your not there for treatment or visiting someone you should not be there at all

    Yes, of course it would be strange.

    This is phrased like you're a nurse asking but I don't believe that's the case.
