I'm not familiar with the shows personally, but I would imagine any episodes of "House", "ER", "Grey's Anatomy" etc...could provide a plethora of such examples.

House is a good example as there's a good deal of night stuff therein. But a lot of this will depend on what look you want.
Typically, from my recollection, day/night in most hospitals is about the same... it actually leads to something called ICU Psychosis, which my dad suffered from before his passing.
In any case, most of the rooms will have some floros somewhere over the bed which you can ops to be the only source therein. Or, you can go and have a table lamp with some spill in from out in the corridor, depending on how dark you want it. or just spill from outside in the hallways.
I don't recall if there are any night shots within this film, but The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, shot by Janusz Kaminski takes place primarily in a hospital (and it's a gorgeous film) and I'm sure can offer some good examples.

I think One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (nominated for oscar in best cinematography, 1975) has some of this towards the end.
