"Lack of consideration for family members of patients"

My sibling-in-law was in hospital for quite some time and we live a very, very far away. I personally had been staying down on one of the lower levels as I was told I was not able to stay in the room with them. The early hours of one morning, security woke me up to tell me that the nurses on that floor had complained about me sleeping on one of the couches in the lounges. Obviously, the night staff on that ward have no consideration for the family members of patients who have nowhere else to stay. This hospital should make an area where patient's family members can stay when they're here for a long period of time. Not happy with some of the night staff and the hospital.
