Is a fan required by code in a bathroom? I'm in dialysis, and there's no fan in the bathroom, its really gross in there all the time and they leave the door open to air the poop air out into the room where we are getting dialysis!

my city requires a fan OR window in

but its not for the poop smell... its for moisture control.

if you are worried about smells, get some Ozium and one of those dispensers that blasts a bit into the room every 15 minutes. or open the window.

if you don't have a window, you should most definitly install a fan. even if you do have a window, a fan is still a good idea.

Who's "they"

and from your post, I take it you rent and you want your landlord to install a fan at his expense when he is not required to update existing conditions.

used to be that

if the window was able to be opened then an exhaust fan was not required but that changed in CA in Jan 2008.

Mechanical Ventilation in Bathroom - Even if natural ventilation is provided, mechanical ventilation is required for rooms

containing bathtubs, showers, or similar bathing fixtures. 2007 CBC 1203.4.2.1

Depends

The general rule is that bathrooms that have opening windows don't require exhaust fans, and ones without opening windows do.

Of course your local building codes should be consulted.

And even if it is an older building, where that may not have been the code when it was built, many localities require landlords to update certain things to current codes any time the space has a change of occupancy, when an old tenant leaves, and before a new tenant moves in.

There are also limits at to what may be the responsibility of the landlord, or the responsibility of the tenant if he's using the space for other than regular commercial space.

So you need to know what the rules are in your area. And there are often different rules for commercial, and residential buildings.

You should speak to the manager of the place where you get dialysis, or find a different place to go. If nobody's complaining, nothing will ever get done.
