Strange Observations – Rusty Electrical Box

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.
