Hospitals Are Supposed to Be Clean and Healthy Places
Infections are caused by fungi, bacteria, viruses and parasites. Hospitals are required to have policies and procedures about sanitation and infection control. When you go to the hospital for medical care, you have a right to expect a clean, healthy environment that ensures your medical problems won't become worse.
