Case Study atThe Regional Medical Center at Memphis
"It’s not a matter of if you will have to evacuate, but rather when you will have to evacuate,” says Stephen Chunn, Safety Director at The Regional Medical Center at Memphis, TN. With that in mind, Chunn knows disaster preparation is critical, especially since the Med is located in an earthquake zone.
As such, the Med applied for grant monies through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to purchase the Stryker Evacuation Chairs for enhanced disaster response capabilities. HRSA mandates specified building standards for at-risk hospitals so they are capable of providing services after a disaster.
Evaluation Criteria Met
In making their application, Chunn and his team evaluated a number of evacuation chairs. “We were particularly impressed with how well built and easy to manage the Stryker chair is,” says Chunn. The Stryker chair met all of the team’s evaluation criteria: safety, ease-of-use, construction and cost. “Our team felt the Stryker chair was sturdier than other stair chairs on the market and was especially well suited for larger patients.” adds Chunn. The team also relied heavily on Stryker’s reputation for high quality beds and stretchers in making their decision. With their selection criteria met and grant funded, the Med purchased 43 Stryker Evacuation Chairs. Chairs are accessible in the rehabilitation unit where patients are wheelchair bound. This plan safeguards chairs if an earthquake should occur.
The Med is a 620 bed acute-care teaching hospital that serves a three state region within a 150 mile radius of Memphis. The facility encompasses six interconnected buildings and accommodates up to 2,400 staff, plus patients and visitors. Maintaining safe operations 24/7 is Chunn’s priority. In addition to overseeing day-to-day safety, Chunn manages required safety drills for disaster preparedness. Since purchasing the Stryker chair, they’ve used it during drills that specifically focused on earthquake readiness. “We know this chair is capable of handling our patients in the event of an evacuation and will be long-lasting,” says Chunn.
Staff feedback indicates Stryker’s chair is easy to operate and transports well. “We purchased the best built chair on the market and feel secure that when it is needed, it will perform as expected,” Chunn concludes.
