Except of course that there's no such exit door on the aft compartment set!
There is that fold-out ladder at the corner opposite the entry alcove, supposedly allowing for exit once the aft ramp folds down. It's difficult to spot, but visible in at least two episodes. This was thought out...
I must admit I'd never noticed this before. Do you know which episodes this view appears in?

One might speculate that the aft compartment, not seen until some way into the history of the DF, is a separate cubical container that can be shoved into the aft hold through the hatch, hence the awkward, non-optimal shape.
This would explain the frankly weird nature of the aft compartment!

As for the 7' medical bed, perhaps it is flexible and is stored vertically inside the wall?
It's one of those CT or MRI tube things if I recall correctly - essentially, it wouldn't go vertical but rather would telescope when sliding into the wall.
Except that a character (I forget who) hides inside the medical bed during one episode. A telescopic bed would lead to a telescoping person, eek!
