We were beginning to think it was never going to arrive. Problems with a safety component put the distribution of them on hold. So, we had been waiting, and waiting, and waiting.
But today the Big Boy finally arrived.
The cot was paid for through a donation from the St. John Hospital Foundation. The cot will be carried on the St. John ambulance, but can go anywhere in the county. The cot is designed for larger patients, but it’s also electrically driven.
The lifting of a large patient – once on the cot – will be as easy as pushing a button.
