Another patient got jealous of you visiting your aunt, and the staff blame you for the chaos she created as a result...How exactly does this equate to you being at fault, again? Assuming that this other patient was merely your aunt's hospital roomie and not someone you actually knew, it cannot rightfully be blamed on you that she flipped out. It isn't your fault that her own family didn't happen to visit the same day you came to see your aunt. The hospital staff need to pull the sticks out of their asses.

What a bitch! Op, your actions did not warrant this kind of response from anyone! An action performed out of love for another is a beautiful thing, so fight that hospital staff for not keeping their patient under control!

I read it as the other lady being not quite mentally sound - it doesn't warrant the behaviour but it is more sad for everyone involved. I don't think the hospital should blame OP though,

I forgot that the U.S pronounces Aunt differently to every rational country. Oh well, you win some and you lose some. I will take my downvotes graciously, as only a pun-maker can.

Actually through pun made more sense to me when I used the pronunciation that's less common within the US (awnt), because it sounds a bit like "aren't."

#8, or, like what happens quite often actually, a crazy stranger overreacted to an event completely out of anyone else's control, and people (both patient and staff) took out their own anger and frustration on others. This is something that happens basically everyday in retail and customer service, not usually to this extent, this tantrum was very much over the top, but I have no doubt it happens in places like hospitals as well.

I'm a nurse and have witnessed many a patient meltdown. I have even been attacked. I have never held a visitor to another patient responsible. There has got to be more to this story.

I agree, as a nurse, there is no way a staff member would blame a visitor for a patient going off unless they were taunting the pt somehow, and I can't imagine that happening. I know there are some pretty horrible nurses out there, but there has to be more to the story.

Well, this pretty much explains why she has no visitors. The other patient sounds pretty unstable. She got jealous enough to throw things over something completely out of anyone's control, she could have hurt your aunt, and also the staff. I don't think she should be in a room with other patients, not only to avoid this incident again, but for their own safety. The staff blaming you is just ridiculous, call them out on it, how is it your fault the patient overreacted to something you can't control? Also, were you supposed to foresee her reaction, look into the future or something to avoid the situation? I hope your aunt gets her new room soon, hospital stays can already stressful enough, don't need to add more to it.
