What do you call a person in the hospital?

A hospital "stay" is very common. In healthcare, we refer to the number of days that a person is in the hospital as the "length of stay." The act of actually entering the hospital as an inpatient and starting your stay is "admitting" or "admission". The act of leaving the hospital is "discharge."

Subsequently, one may also ask, who is the top person at a hospital?

Top Healthcare Administrator: The Hospital CEO. If you're extremely ambitious, want to make a difference, and earn a high salary (an average of $467,500), why not aim for the top? The highest level healthcare administrator job is formally known as the hospital CEO — the official "head of hospital."

Secondly, what do you ask someone in the hospital?

Here are a few things you can say or do that are perfectly appropriate.
  • Tell them you have been thinking of them or praying for them.
  • Tell them you are sorry that they have been sick.
  • Tell them you and others miss seeing them.
  • Ask them how they are feeling.

Who is the boss of a hospital?

Depends on what you mean by “leads.” The head of the business is the CEO. The elected leader of the medical staff (doctors) is chief of staff. There is also a chief nursing officer, a compliance officer that makes sure we follow the law.
