Do I have the right to request another nurse?

I'm spending a couple of night in the hospital for an infection I developed post-surgery. My morning nurse just sucks. She is abrupt, and is being mean. I have to coordinate care for my 3 kids under 6 years old (one of whom is autistic. ) yes I also have to rest but I cannot until I figure it out. She's stressing me out with her attitude. Can I request another nurse? If so who do I make the request to? She's here for another 4 hours and I can't stand it any more. About to check myself out AMA if I am not allowed to figure out who's going to watch my kids.
