For anyone fighting against having a smartphone, you may want to rethink it or at least get a wifi enabled tablet. Right now, in many places, if you have to be admitted to the hospital for any reason, you are likely not to be allowed ANY visitors. Many have wifi and that could be the way to connect with family and friends.

You can continue to rail against technology for what ever reason but please consider the above.

Personally, it's been a long time (9-10 years) since I was in that situation with a relative and although I could be in the hospital(s), it was amazingly helpful particularly because I was dealing with significant time zone differences as well.

I currently have a friend in the hospital and happy that he does have access to technology.
