Tell Congress: Hospitals should be allowed to repair lifesaving equipment

If a trained hospital technician can repair a lifesaving piece of medical equipment, such as a ventilator, they should be allowed to do so -- especially during a global pandemic.

But manufacturers often restrict access to service information for the devices they make, making it unnecessarily difficult for hospitals to maintain their own equipment and even causing delays in patient procedures.

It's crucial that hospital technicians are allowed access to the service materials that will help them save lives. Tell your U.S. representative to support medical right to repair legislation in the next coronavirus aid package.
