It would make a whole lot more sense to just move the switches within the box. That's a 10 minute job with no more tools than a screwdriver. Though in any case they still need to be labeled.

Brown switches seem like an odd choice in a hospital setting. Those things could be covered with dirt or blood and you couldn't see it.
That's why they painted the Surgeons area on HMS Victory red:)

Pic color is bad. It’s red.

How can you find time to do things over if you can't find time to do things right. A simple call out on the specs would have prevented the hole issue.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like the electrician took time to get to faceplate screws correct.

There are very few light switches in my various homes that seem aligned with the order of the lights or even up for on and down for off.

How hard is it for a electrician to install them "correctly"?

Switch the wires? it's even simpler... remove the face plate, re-organize the switch in the box, reinstall the faceplate... Of course, change the labels to match.
For me, switching the wires is easier than messing with the silly-long screws, but whatever you prefer...
