  • Acción
    Arjo sent "Urgent Device Recall Customer Notification" cover letters dated April 15, 2009 to the end user accounts who received the affected BHM/Medi-Man Combi Slings, to the attention of the Administrator/Risk Manager, advising them of the potential for possible stitching failure that could lead to a hazardous situation. Enclosed with the letter was a copy of the BHM Medical Field Safety Notice, FSN 10/2009/ca, dated April 3, 2009 which was sent to their BHM customers in the U.S. on April 7, 2009. The FSN identified the part numbers of the BHM/Medi-Man Combi Slings, described the potential health hazard, and listed the actions to take. The accounts were instructed to inspect and assess their slings' suitability for use per the Slings Maintenance Instructions. If the sling is showing this kind of breakage, the account was instructed to remove it from use and discard it immediately. If the inspection reveals no deterioration of the stitching, the sling is safe to use. The accounts were requested to complete and return the enclosed FSN receipt form within 10 days, acknowledging the receipt and understanding of the letter, and indicating the number of slings in use prior to inspection, the number of slings in use after the inspection, and the number of slings rejected. The accounts will be contacted for the replacement of their eligible old slings (in use up to two years).
