    I just got word from corporate that all the Renasys units and the disposables are being recalled due to a government regulation. All Renasys products are frozen until further notice.
    This will be at least a 2 to 3 month fix.

    Get out the resume, commissions will not be happening.

    Customers should be receiving the recall notice in the next week. Accounts will be extremely mad. We don't have a back up plan except some cool looking gauge. Maybe a hoover vacuum cleaner might work in the meantime.

    Heck, a Hoover might do a better job than our pump since I have seen so many failed wounds on the Renasys.

    Just keeping it real.

    Wow, I just heard Medtronic totally thumbed their nose at buying us since they merged with Covidien. Medtronic got cold feet when they heard about the massive recall on the Renasys and related product.

    This is just getting worse by the minute.

    The titanic is going down.

    Guess I should have taken swimming lessons.

    Reports of wound fluid and /or blood that were not evacuated from beneath the wound dressing and the pump blockage alarm did not activate has been associated with inadequate Soft Port sealing at the wound site or improper positioning of the Soft Port orifice over the wound contact dressing drape. Inadequate sealing can result in air leaks and contribute to inefficient fluid evacuation causing significant

    Wasnt this from a long time ago, when we fixed the canisters? This isnt a new recall. Neither is the other one about the pooling. All old news.

    Play it down all you want but there was a negative event reported to the FDA. This is NOT a voluntary recall and there is no quick fix. Inspection into claims, lawsuits and the inevitable commercials stating "if you have ever used this product, call us" S&N will drop biotherapeutics like its a hot rock. warm up the resume and please exit the vehicle

    When is the recall going to happen? I have established great relationships with my WOCN's when are we going to tell the hospitals? I want them to hear it from us, not the Internet or a competitor.
