In one of my clinics we have a constant problem with broken ethernet ports on the wall behind machines. I believe the problem is when the patient chair is leaned back. I don't have this problem at any other clinic.
I have been trying to come up with a idea with no success. My most recent idea is cutting a small block of 2x4 and placing it right above the port. I think it would protect the port when the chair is leaned back.
If I decide to go with this plan. Is there any thing special I will have to do? Is there a special paint I would have to use?
maybe discuss with charge nurse / clinical manager to reconfigure the chair & dialysis machine put machine in front of Ethernet port instead of chair I know it can be a logistics nightmare but worth the discussion
Lowes or home depot, you can get a plastic cover that is used for electrical outlets that are outside. If they hit that with a chair yes it may crack and break but also they would see/hear and hopefully not do it again
