Little help?

Dammit, I'm trying to write fic but I realize I don't know the answer to this question since I've never spent the night in the hospital:

Do they turn off the lights in the patient's rooms? Is there a bedside lamp or something, in that case? Or are the overhead lights only dimmed? I kind of can't imagine that patients are lying there in complete darkness and my memory of hospital scenes in movies and TV (3 whole seasons of Grey's and who knows how many of ER!) doesn't seem to be helping.

THANK YOU! ETA: I think I've got my answer. Thank you, flist!
