1. A person support apparatus comprising:
a support surface;
a vital sign sensor, the vital sign sensor adapted to detect a vital sign of a person positioned on the support surface;
an indicator adapted to issue an indication in response to a triggering event, the indication including at least one of an aural and visual characteristic;
a controller in communication with the vital sign sensor and the indicator, the controller adapted to use the vital sign sensor to determine a first sleep state of the person positioned on the support surface; and
a transceiver adapted to communicate with a second person support apparatus and to receive a second sleep state of a second person supported on the second person support apparatus; wherein the controller is further adapted to alter the at least one of the aural and visual characteristic when the triggering event occurs and the first sleep state is an awake state and the second sleep state is an asleep state.
