A Stokes basket, typically used by firefighters or search and rescue operations, is found in the morgue of the children's hospital. It may have been used to transport bodies to the morgue, or it may have been stored there afterwards, although the lack of other incongruous stored materials there makes me suspect it is the former and not the latter.
