Each private EMU room has a private bathroom and is furnished with an oversized chair that folds out into a single bed for your observer to sleep on.
Each room also has a straight-back chair. Fire codes do not allow for additional seating.
You may bring your favorite bedding if you desire (blanket, pillow). Children are encouraged to bring their favorite toys, blankets, pillows, books, pacifiers, pictures, and other items that will make their room feel more like home.
Each EMU room also has a small refrigerator, so you may also bring snacks with you since only typical hospital-type snacks will be provided. Soft drinks, fruit juices, and ice are available in the EMU throughout your stay.
Your observer will be provided three meals each day, paid for by the Epilepsy Center. When observers leave the room, your care nurse must be notified and the door must be left open.
The monitored patient can only shower from the waist down and must be accompanied during the shower. Otherwise, a sponge bath in your room -- off-camera of course -- is permissible
