As far as I remember Ben died during the episode. Someone said that he always carries his camera with him and he wouldn't go anywhere without it. At some point in the episode you can start seeing him without the camera - I would say that's the sign of him beeing dead.

From Wikipedia: The role of Janitor was originally devised as a one-time gag in the series' pilot episode, Lawrence admitted: "When we watched the pilot, we knew instantly we had to keep this guy around." so he wasn't even meant to be on the whole first season.

I am a nurse working in a hospital setting and although there have been discussions about moving to smartphones, pagers are still the preferred form of communication.

I watched the episode several times. i think the writers left it a little open to interpretation. I agree that Ben walking around with his camera and then not with his camera may have been the point where he dies.
