A couple months ago, you may remember a post where we found a dead mouse in a CPAP machine. Our new experience this month is an oxygen concentrator that has been shot. That’s right, our repair technician found that a concentrator had a bullet hole. Upon opening the machine, he found what damage had been done by the bullet and found the bullet fragments in the machine.
Apparently someone was frustrated with the machine (or at least that’s what we hope happened) and decided to shoot it. Although this might seem a bit funny, it does have safety concerns. A home health care company should follow-up an event like this to inquire about the safety of the home this machine came from. Not only are you concerned about those within the home, but the safety of company employees who visit the home. When all else fails, a home care company may notify the authorities as to the incident.
