The nurse is setting up a room for an admission. Which equipment would the nurse remove from service and then notify maintenance?

Select all that apply.
  1. a bed that is missing a rail but is still usable
  2. an IV pump with a current safety inspection sticker
  3. a rolling recliner with all wheels in the fully locked position
  4. a new extension cord for a radio that a previous client left behind
  5. a feeding pump with a frayed electrical cord and a current safety inspection sticker
Numbers 1, 4, and 5 are correct.
Rationale: A bed missing a rail is a possible safety hazard and should not be used, even if it is otherwise serviceable. Extension cords pose a fall risk, and outside equipment that has not been inspected for safety may not be used in a health care facility, especially items typically purchased for home use. Equipment with a frayed cord is an electrical hazard and should not be used regardless of its safety inspection label.
