I was recently visiting a family member at a public hospital when I was struck by the appalling condition of one of the wards.
It seems logical to keep a hospital clean at all times to allow inpatients to recover in a hygienic environment. Instead, the toilet emits a pungent odour so strong that even those merely walking by can smell it.
Where is the cleaning crew? Shouldn’t they be cleaning the toilets regularly?
As a public hospital, it is understandable that the medical staff would want patients to recover as quickly as possible to make room for other patients. However, with the lax attitude towards hygiene, does it not cancel out the medical attention given?
The showers are also faulty, resulting in patients having to use water from the sink to clean themselves. It just adds stress to an already stressful situation, delaying the recovery that both the medical staff and the patients themselves want.
I hope the authorities could look into the matter soon.
