St. Elizabeth's trailer trashed

The medical trailer stolen last November from a Red Bluff hospital was found, but there is no money in St. Elizabeth Community Hospital's budget to replace stolen and damaged equipment.

The medical trailer stolen from St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff during Thanksgiving break of last year has been returned.

The trailer was found mid-January at a Stockton tow yard.

Dignity Health spokesperson Mike Mangas said $100,000 worth of equipment that was in the trailer was stolen or damaged, including a $30,000 decontamination shower unit, which he said is beyond repair. They borrowed a mobile shower from Mark Twain Medical Center in San Andreas, but that's only on a six month loan.

It will take a month to fix damage to the trailer, but there is no money available to replace the equipment that was inside, which is used by the hospital and Tehama County during emergency responses.
