Make public hospitals clean

A few days ago, I went to a cardiac ward at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH) to visit an 83-year-old patient. He is accustomed to using a commode at his home but there was none in the hospital. When I went to find one for him, all the toilets looked so dirty that I almost threw up. If the situation in a major hospital like the RMCH is such, what is it like in other smaller hospitals? 

There was also a shortage of beds and many patients had to lie on the floor. All the wards are overcrowded with patients. I urge the authorities concerned to make public hospitals clean and set up more beds to accommodate the growing number of patients.
