Response to missing and broken equipment...


We had a 300 lbs resident stuck in mid Air on the Hoyer lift. It suddenly died for good! The emergency button released itself and brought the resident down to the lowest possible state-midway between the floor and the bed! She was so heavy it took 6 nurses and cna's to get her out the air and into the bed. One hurt her back doing it. The hoyer never had any problems and suddenly died that day. They replaced it fortunately. The horrors of healthcare!
