Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the recalled Lifecare PCA Infusion Pumps have clear plastic doors that close and lock to deter access to the syringe/vial used to deliver the medication. The door can be flexed to the point which allows unauthorized personnel to use objects to press the vial injector or the vial to receive an un-prescribed bolus of medication.
