Evacuations are sometimes mandatory in times when a possible disaster could take many lives. This all sounds well and good, but formulating these evacuation plans are not so simple. How do you organize a mass evacuation of a hospital in which there are many bed ridden patients, some of these patients possibly being cancer victims, burn survivors, amputees, or even midgets?
A new product called the Evacusled, looks more like a product used in a mental institution then as a hospital rescue device, but turns hospital beds into sleds, allowing hospital employees to slide the bed ridden right out their rooms. Evacusled only takes one person to load a patient, compared to older methods which needed upwards of 3-4 per bed. — Andrew Dobrow
