Describe the Event
or Problem:
The therapist was in front of the patient and the assistant in the back of the patient. Patient was using the rail and a crutch on the steps, coming down, and the crutch came apart. The top rubber and aluminum separated from the whole crutch. The crutches were new and had just been opened in the morning PT visit and were just fine at the time. The patient's weight was less than 100 lbs. The Rehab Assistant who completed this report has been here for several years.
Manufacturer response for aluminum crutch, medline (per site reporter)
I talked to Quality and said I had the crutch to send back. They asked me to send a picture and I told him I wanted to send the actual crutch for investigation. They are sending me a shipping label.
