Patient Videos of Dirty Hospital Rooms

Have you ever been to the hospital and thought you wanted to share something with other people about the cleanliness of that room? I have. Sitting for hours in an emergency room or hospital room can be frustrating, especially when that room is less than clean. After-all, hospitals are supposed to be the pillar of clean for many good reasons including infection control.

The patients here are sharing their frustrations with dirty hospital rooms by publicly posting videos on Youtube.

  1. Not to say that the local hospital bad at all, but those videos sure make a decision to get live in care look very good. I guess sometimes having relatives in control of the nursing environment can be the better choice.

  2. This strikes me as a rather sad but true image of some our hospitals. We expect them to be vanguards of hygiene and health but they turn up rather to be the direct opposite.
