Staying in hospital overnight
Patient in hospital bed
If you have to stay in hospital overnight, you will usually stay on a ward as an inpatient.
Inpatients are patients who stay in hospital overnight, for one night or more.
Our leaflets about staying overnight in hospital have more information about what to expect when you stay on a ward.
