Hip surgery patient provided with a lift.

by Roland Rouda, Marin CIL

Chair lift

Another consumer requested funding assistance in connection with a patient lift to help with transfers following hip surgery. We happened to have a patient lift in our equipment donation locker and provided it to her, but it lacked two essential accessories. MCIL funded the accessories, which were special-ordered by a local durable medical equipment dealer. When the accessories were installed, the consumer called to thank us for our help and asked for the name of our executive director so that she could direct a letter of appreciation to his attention.
