Enforcement Report for June 6, 2012

 

"As part of FDA's efforts to increase the transparency of its compliance and enforcement data, FDA will soon be introducing a very different Enforcement Report format aiming to deliver a simpler, clearer report that encourages data download and analyses while also providing savings and encouraging future innovation for Government. Instead of the narrative report you see now, you will find a data-driven report encouraging innovative stakeholders to extract more intelligence out of the data and providing FDA a baseline as it moves forward in its efforts to integrate the Agency's compliance and enforcement data. 
 
We expect to publish the new report mid-June. This will not be the first and only iteration of the report. We want your feedback - the good, the bad, and the ugly. So please be on the lookout for the new report and e-mail us at webmail@oc.fda.gov with your comments."
 
June 6, 2012                                                                                              12-23

The FDA begins a pilot program seeking to expedite notifications of human drug product recalls to the public. The agency will modify the drug product section of the Enforcement Report, published every Wednesday, to include actions that have been determined to be recalls, but that remain in the process of being classified as a Class I, II, or III action. Such recalls will be listed under the heading, “Recalls Pending Classification: DRUGS.” They will be reposted with their classification once that determination has been made. Send comments or suggestions toCDERRecallPilot@fda.hhs.gov.

REASON                                                                                                                                                 
Ethicon Endo-Surgery initiated a voluntary recall due to some lot numbers of the HARMONIC Hand Piece (HP054) and the HARMONIC Blue Hand Piece (HPBLUE), which impacts their compatibility with the HARMONIC Generator 300 (GEN04). The problem occurs after successful set up and initial use of HARMONIC Hand Pieces (HP054 and HPBLUE) with the Generator 300 (GEN04). The procedure is interrupted when the Generator 300 (GEN04) goes into stand-by mode after one minute of cumulative activation time (approximately 10 activations). Once the Generator 300 (GEN04) goes into stand-by mode, the device cannot be activated to complete the procedure without fully re-setting the system. The problem will continue to occur each time the system is re-set and one minute of cumulative activation time is reached

Siemens has identified a potential patient safety issue for e.cam and Symbia E camera systems that have had the radial drive motor assembly replaced during a Service action. There is a remote chance that during the motor replacement the radial drive gear may have been replaced incorrectly. If the gear is installed incorrectly the mechanical brake may not engage creating a patient hazard if the system is in the 180 degree head configuration.

Brand Name: QuietCare, Model Numbers QC200403, v.02; QC200403, v.03; QC200403, v.04 -- Classification Name: System, Environmental Control. The system is a passive behavior-monitoring device. QuietCare uses strategically placed unobtrusive, passive wireless infrared pyroelectric sensors in the senior's residence to detect their movement. Data from these sensors are sent to a base station that periodically transmits the information to a centralized secure file server through standard phone lines over a toll-free number. Sophisticated algorithms analyze the data, learning each individual's normal patterns of behavior. When the system detects significant deviations from these baselines it automatically alerts designated caregivers. QuietCare also generates alerts of late wake-ups, potential bathroom falls and if household temperatures become dangerously low or high. The behavioral changes that the system tracks can often serve as subtle indicators of the potential emerging health problems. These changes include: nighttime bathroom usage, entering or exiting the bedroom at a different time than usual, change in the number of times the refrigerator door is opened/closed change in the number of times the medicine cabinet door is opened/closed. The intended users of the QuietCare device are the caregivers at the Assisted Living Facilities and Independent Living Facilities. The monitored individuals (seniors) do not actively operate the device and the device function is not dependent upon the senior resident's ability to use the device. --- Class 2 device, 510(k) exempt, Device Listing Number D117156.

The QuietCare production system experienced a partial outage from about 15:00 hours until 22:30. During the engineering investigation into the cause of the service disruption, it was discovered that some residents did not have the wander and night motion features properly activated, and alerts were not being transmitted. Failure to generate alerts in a timely manner could result in a missed fall or injury, which could then cause a delayed response time to a resident.
