Bedside commode

Hello. How do you say "bedside commode" in Mexican Spanish? I'm referring to a chair that might be placed next to a patient's bed in a hospital room. Is "silla con orinal" the most common term used by hospital staff in Mexico? Thanks in advance.

    Just the other day I read "cómodo", it was a facebook comment from one Mexican friend to another one; so, I would say it's fine.

    Also, in RAE (Spanish Dictionary) it says Mexican uses "silleta" I have never heard it though.ómodo (see meaning #3)
