Manufacturers issue recalls and alerts monitored by the FDA. The FDA, your state’s board of health and your accrediting organization can show up onsite, without warning, present the recall and ask for proof the item was handled as directed by the alert or recall notice. Failure to follow an alert or recall can have serious patient safety, liability, compliance and accreditation consequences. In this session, you will learn what types of recall alerts exist and how to effectively and efficiently manage the alerts through an Electronic Alert Management System (EAMS), as well as how to evaluate key components of a successful EAMS.
