Product Detail

Product Description Affinity Four Birthing Bed P3700 Product Usage: The Affinity, Four Birthing Bed is intended to be used as birthing beds for women of child bearing age in an LDR (Labor, Delivery, Recovery ) or LDRP (Labor, Delivery, Recovery, Postpartum) setting within the acute care Labor and Delivery market. They are not intended for use as general hospital beds.
Recall Number Z-2082-2012
Classification Class II
Code Info Affinity Four Birthing Beds (P3700) manufactured with Serial Numbers H331AA4785 thru N081AA7966
Product Distributed Qty 12,726 devices
Reason For Recall During review of our last braking system via that field corrective action, the system still did not meet our expectations, which is to eliminate the hazards of patient falling. Bed movement immediately prior to, or during the birthing process may still create distractions and delays, resulting in patient or caregiver falls, or contribute to a deviation in a procedure, (e.g. IV insertion, epidural placement, episiotomy incision, vacuum extraction, forceps delivery, suprapubic pressure). In an effort to further improve the braking system of the Affinity Four Birthing Bed, Hill-Rom developed an enhanced brake detent assembly.
