Ask maintenance or your unit secretary for assistance with repairs. If you are using
a Hebrew Home phone, did you dial 9 for an outside line?
(Have you pushed the TV button on your remote?)
Nursing can call maintenance to check on problems.
You or your family can do this, or maintenance will be happy to do this for you.
Maintenance must check anything electrical to be sure it meets fire code safety stan-
dards. Fire code does not permit irons, heating elements of any kind, heating pads or
electric blankets.
Tell your nursing assistant, who will ask Engineering to make routine adjustments.
If it is more than a wheelchair adjustment, nursing will ask OT/PT to evaluate seating
and positioning.
Let your charge nurse or house supervisor know immediately. They will notify maintenance.
