In-room Bingo

Recommended Posts

How would you do in-room bingo and do any of you have the Red Hat society in your facility? How did you get that started? Thank you for any help that you can give me.

Hey brandy,

I do what I call Intercom Bingo. The res., staff, voluteers, & in-rooms all play this. You could take what I do and change it up to fit your needs. I bought bingo card that had 4 cards per sheet. These sold for a dollar per sheet. The money was split between the winner and the act. dept. Mon thur Fri. every morning I do morning announcements over the PA System. At the end of the announcements I would call out 1 bingo number. (To get the number I use the same thing that I use at reg. bingo, a bingo cage w/ balls) After I have called the number it is written on a large sheet of paper & hung out on the bulletin board. This game can last a few days or a even a couple of weeks. Once I have a winner it is announced over PA that person(s) card is hung on BB. I don't give the winner the cash until 2 days later. This is because someone else may have a bingo and was could be off or out on pass etc.. If you have more than 1 winner the pot is split 3 ways or 4 ways, depending on the number of winners.

The res. that are you in-rooms can usually hear the announcements, some call me on my phone from the phone in their room. I also have som eres. who play but are bedbound, so their card is hung up in their room, where thay can see it and usually a nurse aide will check it daily. But if not then one of us in act. will drop by and check out the card for them.

This is a very very popular game in our facility.

Red Hat is hugh, go to their web site and find a group that is in your area. Then contact the "Queen" head lady. Explain to her what you wanting to do. She should be able to guide you & who knows her group may come speak with your lady res. & even accept them into their group.

This group is so much fun and I think it perfect for our res.

If you get one up & going how about sharing with us how you did it and how the res. like it. P
