A Staff member didn't seem keen on taking me down in my wheelchair to the entrance

Hi.

I have an office job one day a week.  I can walk, but i use my wheelchair while i am there.  It is a wheelchair someone pushes me in.  I was born with Scoliosis.  My sister was unavailable to pick me up one week, so a staff member needed to do it.  She didn't seem like she wanted to do it and said really i should have someone to pick me up in the wheelchair and take me down to reception when i finish work and go home.  I thought that was wrong, i don't see why she can't do it.  She did take me down, but i don't think she was right to say what she said.  What do you think?
