Transports NP to TKC

I routinely see patient families (and even guest services) struggling to push patients up the ramp from NP into the TKC access area. Are there viable alternatives to this route?

Thank you for sharing this feedback Janie. Are there other locations where you see a similar challenge?

Not that I have observed. This is just an area I frequently walk through.

I was volunteering with transport yesterday and had to take this route. I concur that it is very difficult to push patients up this ramp. There are alternate routes, but they are a bit longer and less direct. I think it would help a bit if the flooring was vinyl and not carpet, as carpet adds to the difficulty. I agree with you, Janie!

I agree, vinyl flooring might be easier. Also, I don't know how prominently a call box is displayed in case help is needed. I know there is something at the other end of that ramp.
