In April of 2019, Alaris notified medical professionals about a possible plastic weakening in bezel assemblies on some Alaris infusion pumps. After a further investigation, over 151 million Alaris 8100 infusion sets were recalled by Becton, Dickinson, and Company. The product is an infusion pump that was designed to safely and efficiently deliver fluids into patients’ bodies, such as medications, blood, and more. However, due to a plastic weakening in bezel assemblies on some Alaris infusion pumps, many patients were either being overmedicated or undermedicated as a result.

In the recall announcement, BD stated, “…infusion sets affected by this recall have a variation in the wall thickness of the pumping segment and therefore may not be fully occluded by the pump. The issue has the potential to lead to unintended delivery of medication when the pump module is not in running status or can result in faster than expected drug delivery flow when the pump is infusing. Since this issue may lead to flow inaccuracies through the pumping cycle process, this may result in an over- infusion and the potential for serious patient injury or death, depending on the type of medication that is being delivered.” If you or someone you know has sustained a serious injury as a result of this product defect, the experienced attorneys at Brock & Goetzmann are here to help.
