Specifically steam generators, autoclaves, and gravity sterilizers (the stuff they would have been using). Properly inspected steam systems are very safe. Seeing as they had an earlier complaint for hazmat management, I do not trust that they had anyone looking at their steam systems.

As a BMET (biomedical equipment repair technician), we used to do these things called MERC (medical equipment repair corpse) missions, were we would get in a van with a bunch of common spare parts and tools, and we would do maintenance on equipment at VA hospitals and community clinics. At least a half a dozen times, I had to report BASIC but extremely dangerous maintenance conditions. Things like exposed wires near an O2 tree.

You can hate OSHA or the food inspectors or whichever other inspection agency makes your job a pinch as much as you want, but those inspections happen for a reason.
