Action Hospira sent an Urgent Device Field Correction letter dated February 1, 2013, to all affected customers. The letter identified the product, the problem, and the action to be taken by the customer. The letter recommends that facilities immediately visually inspect their Plum a+ devices to determine if the distal pressure pin is broken or damaged via instructions included in the letter. If a broken or damaged distal pressure pin is observed, remove the device from service and contact Hospira at 800-441-4100 (Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, CST) to report the issue. If the return of defective pumps significantly impairs a facility's ability to operate normally, Hospira will provide loaner pumps. The letter also encourages customers to insert cassettes into pumps in accordance with the instructions found in the operator's manual. Customers were asked to complete the attached reply form and return it via fax to the number on the form. Customers with questions were instructed to call 1-800-441-4100 or 1-800-241-4002, option 4.
