"Old falling apart wards"

As a patient who has a respiratory condition I would expect that there was a need for high quality maintenance in a hospital, especially an old building like G block at SCGH. Imagine my surprise when I looked at the ceiling to see a large build up of dirt and dust on the ceiling and around the sprinkler head. It looked like no one had bothered to clean or do anything for many months (if not longer). The ceiling tiles in one corner of the room have paper towels wedged under them to stop them vibrating. This is hardly what one could call well maintained and fit for purpose.
I have photos of the ceiling and the paper towel wedged under the ceiling tiles.
I have been a long term patient and it appears to me that the hospital is falling apart and the wards are in dire need of refurbishment.
