Action Baxter sent an Urgent Medical Device Correction notice on 06/22/2022 by letter. The notice explained the problem and the hazard and recommended the following: customers refrain from making updates to bag label templates and to contact Baxter Technical Support if updates to bag label templates are needed. Please continue to follow the instructions in the Abacus User and Abacus Configuration Guides when creating an order, and have a pharmacist thoroughly review all order outputs including the printed label for accuracy and safety. As mentioned above, please ensure your facility processes include pharmacy checks during the compounding process as well as a nursing check.
