It is not a place for sick people to be cured, well to be exact, it is the home of the sick people to gather up, as the medical procedures back then are limited and a lot of new emerging sickness are being recognized time through time.
The risks of cross contamination of bacteria through air are imminent and feared to affect the healthy and the doctors and nurses. The stench of the rotting carcasses and amputees at that time, due to the inefficient cold holding storage facilities, are infiltrating the air, which again, spreading the risk of diseases cross contamination throughout the hospitals.
This is when the famous inventor, Maurice Berger invented the air purification system to eliminate the risk of cross contamination through the air, that deodorizes and eliminates airborne bacteria, bad odor and disintegrates second hand smoke in the air.
