Welcome to Hospitals
A hospital is an institution for health care provided by physicians,
surgeons, nurses, and other professionals.
During the Middle Ages the hospital could serve other functions,
such as almshouse for the poor, or hostel for pilgrims. The name
comes from Latin hospes (host), which is also the root for the English
words hotel, hostel, and hospitality. The modern word hotel derives
from the French word hostel, which featured a silent s, which was
eventually removed from the word; French for hospital is hôpital.
Some patients just come for diagnosis and/or therapy and then leave
(outpatients); while others are admitted and stay overnight or for
several weeks or months (inpatients).
Hospitals are usually distinguished from other types of medical
facilities by their ability to admit and care for inpatients.
