Why are electrical outlets installed upside down?
in a new, very large hospital we are in, every electrical outlet is installed upside down, with the ground plug at the top. I see that at schools also. It makes plugging in a large AC adapter a PITA. Can anyone (electricians?) tell me why that is the standard way of installing electrical outlets in new construction?
