What do hospital halls smell like? Why is it always the same smell? (Except in patient rooms, where it smells different.)

Hospitals smell differently and depending on the focus of the hospital.
Basically, it is a mixture of smell of urine, sweat and dirt - the natural secretions of the human body. People. in hospitals, wash less often - some because of their social status, some because of their usual habits, and some because of the squeamishness of using the communal shower. This odor is joined by the smell of medications, antiseptics, and cleaning supplies.
Therefore, the odor is clearest in the emergency rooms, and least so in the comfort wards with hygiene accessibility within the ward.
