Sample Solution:

``````SELECT p.name AS "Patient",
s.room AS "Room",
r.blockfloor AS "Floor",
r.blockcode AS "Block"
FROM stay s
JOIN patient p ON s.patient=p.ssn
JOIN room r ON s.room=r.roomnumber;
``````

Sample Output:

```      Patient      | Room | Floor | Block
-------------------+------+-------+-------
John Smith        |  111 |     1 |     2
Random J. Patient |  123 |     1 |     3
Dennis Doe        |  112 |     1 |     2
(3 rows)
```

Explanation:

The said query in SQL that retrieves the name of the patient, the room number they are staying in, and the floor and block of that room.

The JOIN keyword joins the patient table to the stay table based on the ssn and patient columns and the room table to the stay table based on the roomnumber and room columns.
