THURSDAY, Nov. 10 (HealthDay News) -- Mizuho OSI Modular Table Systems are the subject of a class I recall following reports of patient injury, according to a recall notice issued Nov. 9 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
In July of this year, the manufacturer issued a field advisor notice to hospital personnel involved in the use of the table systems, with warnings and recommendations for safe use, including performing a count of the T-pins to assure the table's stability.
The FDA, however, is concerned that Mizuho has not identified all factors that may have led to unanticipated instability in the table and/or patient falls to the floor. Affected models and lot numbers can be found at: Mizuho OSI Modular Table Systems Recall Notice.
According to the FDA, "patient falls or unanticipated movement may result in serious injury or death."
