CareFusion 303 Inc is recalling the Alaris Pump Module because of the risk of the keypad lifting up due to fluid entry. This could lead to keys that become unresponsive or stuck (See Figure 1). This may lead to an infusion delay or interruption or prevent clinicians from changing fluid or medication infusions on the affected devices.
High-risk patient populations who are receiving life-sustaining infusions are at the greatest risk of harm. For these patients, delays or interruption of infusions can cause serious injury or death.
