  • Causa
    The issue relates to fasteners securing overhead lift rail systems to ceilings in chlorinated indoor pool applications. two complaints with no confirmed injuries have been reported to hill-rom that corrosion of the fasteners could lead to the rails becoming unattached and falling. hill-rom’s analysis has concluded that the root cause is stress corrosion cracking (scc) on the stainless steel hardware may occur in the presence of chlorinated environments such as swimming pool areas. there is a risk that continued use of the stationary lift in a chlorinated pool area could result in injuries to patients, caregivers or bystanders.
