CareFusion Recalls PC Unit From Alaris Pump For Injury Threat
A component of an intravenous medication delivery system is being recalled by CareFusion due to an error that could impede swift delivery of medicine to a patient. The Alaris electronic infusion pump is the system in question, and the faulty component is the PC unit with a model number of 8015. An error code reading Missing Battery Error or System Error can appear, and should this error pop up when the machine is booted on, programming might not be possible. If the error happens during treatment, a medical professional would not be able to make changes to therapy as needed, and an injury hazard would thus be posed. CareFusion will make necessary repairs.
