A sitter is an unskilled person who will stay in a hospital room 24/7 with a patient who is considered a danger to themselves, because of either a psychiatric problem or mental impairment (delirium or dementia).RelevanceWhen the physician writes an order for a sitter, the hospital covers the cost. Sometimes, families are asked to cover some of the cost of sitter services, or provide a family member to stay with the patient to ensure safety.
