The Mystery of Room 311

The machine that goes ping...

It will sound like a joke but it's a real story and a tragic one. That's my country, Portugal.
Read only if you have a very dark sense of humour.
During some months it was common belief that roon 311 of D. Pedro hospital, in Aveiro was cursed and was evil. People died in there. Every friday morning, the nurses entered in this room of the intensive care unit only to find another dead patient. Of course they had been subjects to life-saving surgery and risky treatments but their life wasn't at stake anymore... Or was it?
Apalled, the medical staff considered that there might be some kind of bacteria infecting the air of the room. Alerted by the family of the victims the police conducted an investigation. Even so, the patients in room 311 kept dying, weekly, always on fridays. Finally a surveillance camera was installed and the mystery was solved.
Every friday morning, around six o' clock, the cleaning lady unplugged the patients breathing device to plug in the vaccum cleaner.
