The Smell of the Place
When you walk through your hospital, take a good whiff. If you smell feces or urine while moving through the hallway, chances are that someone is lying in it.
It is also possible that an unfortunate soul had an accident on the floor and no one rushed to clean it up. In either event, it takes some time for the odor to permeate the corridors. This is a telltale sign of reckless patient neglect. If you are already involved as a patient or visitor, the best way to deal with this appalling condition is to complain in the strongest possible terms to the CEO. If such a malodorous state exists, it is unlikely to be an isolated incident. The speed with which the administration responds is an indicator as to whether or not you should immediately look to transfer to another place, even if it is some distance away.
