Philips: Send back recalled devices

Philips: Send back recalled devices

AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands – Philips advised HME providers in a Dec. 15 letter to return to the company any recalled DreamStation 1 devices that patients return to them. 

As part of litigation stemming from Philips’ voluntary recall of the devices, a Nov. 10 court order “identifies the various types of evidence that must be preserved and requires parties and nonparties, including (HME providers), to preserve such evidence” and a Nov. 19 court order “permits individuals, including (HME providers), to return devices to Philips Respironics for repair or replacement.” 

Philips says its remediation process is in in-line with requirements of these orders. 

SD cards, humidifiers and accessories, like masks and tubing, are not part of the recall and should not be returned, the company says.
