Infusion Pump Manufacturer Announces Corrective Action

Hospira, Inc. of Lake Forest, IL has issued an urgent correction notice in connection with a docking station used with the company’s GemStar infusion pumps.

In a press release issued by the company and posted on the website of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), attaching the docking station to the GemStar infusion pump may result in the failure of the infusion pump to properly power up, or cause the pump to display an error code indicating excessive input voltage from external sources, thereby halting pump infusion activity.

According to Hospira, users should turn on the pump before connecting it with the docking station, and remove the external battery pack accessory from the docking station and pump prior to installing the pump into the docking station. The company is not issuing a product recall at this time.
