Cleaning up my alcoholic sister's poo...

Found my sister yesterday in a poo covered apartment. I had her sent to the hospital (which she was released from 2 weeks ago). She was drinking again but now her apt, carpet, floors, mattress and sofa is covered with poo. I just opened the windows and locked the door when they carted her out. It needs to be cleaned up but should SHE do it or hire someone to do it or should I get it cleaned up and/or present her with the bill? Will a regular cleaning service do this or do I need some sort of specialized service?
I've talked to some people and arguments for having me clean it up is:
someone out of the hospital really doesn't have the strength to deal with this.
arguments against is:
she needs to see/be responsible for her life and the results.
I don't know what to do. Any thoughts?
