Revealing mistake: Just before Andy pushes Francesca down the stairs in her wheelchair, we see Lou walking down the steps, and they are quite steep.

A ramp was put there - you may need to look very carefully and you see it pop up slightly from the steps. [A reasonable way to prevent injury but it is still a mistake.]
