Strange Observations – Part 15

Continuing in a series of strange things that I have seen when consulting at hospitals…

This is an evacuation chair or sled that is hanging from a sprinkler drain pipe…

Two deficiencies with this one picture: 1) You cannot support anything off of sprinkler pipe; 2) You cannot store anything in the corridor that can impede egress.

The reason why storing an evacuation chair in a stairwell landing impedes egress, is when someone goes to get the chair that person impedes egress for others using the stair.
