  • A hospital is a place for people who are very sick, not a vacation hotel away from annoying family. What they'd do? Ask you to clean your room?

  • For pneumonia, they will do a chest X-ray. When my son had it, it was so bad he was hospitalized for 2 weeks. Get to the ER to get checked out. GL

  • You can get a chest x-ray at the ER. They will not put you in the hospital for a week even if you do have pneumonia. My husband had multiple pulmonary embolisms and was in the ICU and only spent a week in the hospital. If you need a break from your family, check yourself into a hotel.

  • Call the hospital to found out what usually happens. You should probably go there anyway to get checked out. If you just want to get away from your family, then look up an extended stay hotel or find a friend to stay with.

  • Go to the Dr. The will give you a prescription.
    Hospitals are not so you can get away from it all.

  • If you're an adult, put yourself on a 3 day psych hold. Being on a psych ward sounds like an appropriate place for you.
