Event Description
The customer reported that "we are experiencing the vs 4 monitors coming loose from the bracket they are sitting on. It is as if after being moved and turned the bolt/nut comes loose allowing the machine to slide right off the platform. We have had bio-med tighten all the monitors again, however we have had a couple instances in which the monitor fell off and just missed hitting the patient in the head. We need to know if there are other options for locking bolts, or a device that can go around the monitor so if the bolt comes loose it does not fall". There was no reported patient impact.
