      Strange Observations - Rusty Electrical Box

      by Bob Armbrister, on Apr 11, 2019 12:00:00 AM

      Continuing in a series of strange things that I have seen while consulting at hospitals...

      Ah...  This is plain ugly.

      As you can see, water ran into this electrical junction-box and eventually rusted out the metal box.

      I don't remember the whole story and quite honestly, it really isn't my business, but I can't for the life of me figure out why the facility department did not take appropriate action to resolve the water leak to prevent this from happening.

      This is a type of deficiency that can lead to a Condition Level finding, if the surveyor believes the staff failed to properly maintain their utilities... which it appears to be so.
