I was visiting my sister in the hospital and found this. Enjoy.

My sister would require curtains or blinds on that window before she would use that toilet, plus a lock on the inside of the door (which I'm pretty sure hospitals don't allow).

That was in the ICU. Toilet next to bed.

Interesting. But the 5th picture is in need of a brake repair (smiling)
The basic design looks like a penal install, but the rotation of the outlet has me confused as to how the commode was flushed.... using what? Very efficient, but is really something from the past. What kind of Hospital is it?

Best Wishes

Looks like sink above has its drain connected to toilet. Maybe you turn on sink faucets to flush toilet? But if this was a retrofit you wouldn't think the original sink drain line below the toilet would be large enough. Maybe it's just a fancy bedpan, has a holding tank underneath the toilet but the sink drains normally thru a passthru pipe.

The big black button near the sink is for flushing the toilet. I guess the clear tube on top supplies the flushing water. I'll check it out the next time I go back, but hopefully I won't have to.

This hospital is kind of weird. Big buildings, few people. Almost like they closed down everything except the ICU which I think specializes in heart surgery.
