Dirty floors and kitchens and dusty vents were found by inspectors who checked a veterans hospital in Denver and a small veterans clinic in southern Colorado, according to an article on the Miami Herald website. 

A report by the Veterans Affairs Department's inspector general said a February inspection found cleanliness problems in eight patient care areas, two areas where instruments are sterilized and in some ice machines and refrigerators in kitchens.

It also said some ventilation grills and horizontal surfaces were dusty.

The inspections also found two doors in a mental health treatment facility were found unlocked and the alarms were not turned on.
