"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."  This is true as far as it goes.  But there are always an infinitude of remaining possibilities, of varying degrees of improbability.  You can't begin to think of most of them.  And you definitely shouldn't assume that the first one that comes to your mind must be the one correct one.

We are very tired of doctors who, having failed to find a probable cause of a symptom by anything they can test for, jump to some conclusion about something that wouldn't show up on any test they can think of... and insist that that MUST be THE answer.

Right close to the wall, the floor in the Emergency and Observation areas looks okay.  And around the beds, where there's a lot of wear from the beds being shifted, the floor looks fairly clean.  In between, it's grungy.  Incredibly greyish grotty.

I know the floors are washed, sort-of.  I've seen people pushing around some kind of antiseptic mop/brush/swab thing.  But it's not taking the crud away.  If I squirt a bit of hand sanitizer on the floor, wait a few seconds, then rub with a tissue, the floor gets back to the appearance of the clean areas.  And the tissue turns dark grey.

The old line about "but it's clean dirt" I find unconvincing, under the circumstances.
