      I can't say whether it's true for CIMA, but I will say that Clinica
      (Hospital) Catolica definitely has a "sofa" that's made up each night
      by hospital staff into a bed for a family member. They heartily
      encourage a family member to stay with the patient, providing meals
      (for an absurdly low charge) and the bed service, mid-morning coffee
      and snacks, afternoon tea, and so on. It's a win-win since it gives
      family members a way to stay close to their loved one in the hospital,
      and it helps the hospital since that person is also expected to help
      with things like meal-time for the patient or other similar non-medical
      care.

      Every hospital I have ever been in in Costa Rica had a bed/couch thing in the room for family members. It is common practice here. I have been in CIMA, Clinica

        Every hospital I have ever been in in Costa Rica had a bed/couch
        thing in the room for family members. It is common practice here. I
        have been in CIMA, Clinica Biblica and Clinica Catolica. Everyone had
        a bed of some sort for family members and as I recall they actually
        LET family members and friends use them.

        WhenI was at Clinica Catolica, friends arrived late at night, as I
        was pretty sick and they stayed there on that couch sleeping the rest
        of the night, no one said a word. In Clinica Biblica my friend spent
        the night on the sofa bed as well, kind of holding my hand through a
        surgical recovery.

        I think is a beautiful thing that health is seen as a family affair
        and not just you and some specialist or specialists with your medical
        relationship.

        I would alwasy confirm such things, but in my experience it is common
        practice here.

          When my daughter spent a night in Cima last fall they told me that I
          was welcome to stay. The couch in her room turned into a bed that was
          really very comfortable. They brought me sheets, blanket, and pillow.
          It's a very family friendly place.
