Equipment safety

What do you do if equipment (wheelchair, lift, etc) needed for yourself or your family member is not working?

Do not attempt to fix anything yourself or try to use it if it is broken. This equipment requires a trained technician. Please inform a nurse or the program/unit director.

All clinical equipment is inspected regularly by a qualified technician, identified with a tag and recorded in a central database. Equipment which is taken out of service or which need repairs is tagged “Do Not Use.”
