Best thing your mech can do is flush the ps system and hope for the best. Break fluid is nasty stuff to many things not designed to accept it. Hopefully the ps system (or at least the really expensive and hard to get to parts) will tolerate it but you won't know how that will impact it long term.

Why is checking the brake fluid level a minor project? Is it because of the rain cover? You can just open the reservoir cap, remove the screen and look down in there.

Edit: good observation by Scott and Steve. You are not explicitly saying that you turned the engine (I assumed you did). If so, remove the ps tank, wash it and dry it and top it off with the right fluid before turning the engine and you will be fine.
