:trout: I suppose they would rather you steal that $ 6000 pulse ox machine as opposed to the pack of paper towels that retail for $ 2:50
you know... they started locking ours to the wall of each room now! because several dozen somehow went "missing" in the hospital last year (and this isn't a huge hospital either...) and RT has the keys to them if you have to move one or whatever.
our paper towel dispensers are locked too!! weird... i will have to look next time i'm at work to see what else is locked up...
then again, there are these laptops on wheels that, theoretically, could be stolen at some point in the middle of the night- wheel them down the elevators...? they are not locked or anything, just plugged in around the halls.
but that paper towel thing, it is a mystery. i remember some rest stop i was at one time, the TP dispenser was locked, so you could SEE the TP but not get to it... annoying.
