This page details bugs of Theme Hospital.
Using "HOSPITAL -l x" you can load glitch levels, replacing x with any number. On loading, you may get errors such as "Error loading file /levels/FULLXX.sam" On load, it will either load a "NULL" message or a level briefing. You will always start with a balance of 0, an empty map, et cetra.
Effects of certain actions
These are the effects the writer of this article has seen.

- Room Builder: Load Random Data
- Item Placer: Load Random Data
- Staff Hirer: Load Random Data
- Staff List: Load Random Data
- Map: Crash
