My mother is at the end of her life. I having been sleeping in the hospital for many nights.
I popped downstairs and when returning I stood for 15 minutes at the door before someone could open the door for me. As I couldn't contact anyone on the phone, I was really panicking I was too late. Thankfully this wasn't the case but this has happened regularly and even visitors have had difficulty getting in. Luckily they can call for me to open the door.
It's not as if the nurses are monitoring who is coming in. If you are alone staying with someone it could be very distressing.
