A recall has been issued for Hospira Inc., Abbott Acclaim Infusion Pumps and Hospira Acclaim Encore Infusion Pumps.  Hospira received customer reports of broken door assemblies on the Abbott Acclaim infusion pumps and the Hospira Acclaim Encore infusion pumps. When the door is closed properly, it helps ensure that the tubing is seated properly to ensure appropriate flow of therapy to the patient. If the door assembly breaks, it may prevent the door from closing properly and an over-infusion or a delay of therapy may occur. If the door cannot be closed, the pump cannot be used which can result in a delay of therapy.  Use of these affected products may cause serious adverse health consequences, including death.  For more information, please see http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/ListofRecalls/ucm395845.htm
