Becton Dickinson manufactured and distributed defective silicon tubes that allowed medicine to continue to be pumped into the patient, resulting in an over infusion in what is termed as “free flow”. 151 million life-threatening defective silicon tubes were distributed without Bector Dickinson’s knowledge. This pump does not measure the amount of medicine that is pumped into the patient. It gives nurses and doctors no way of knowing what their patients have received.
