Reason/Issue This is an update to Hospira’s previous Safety Alert Notice (TGA Ref # RC-2011-RN-00812-3) concerning the GemStar Docking Station. At that time, Hospira had received reports from customers of sparking, smoking, charring and electrical shock when using the GemStar Docking Station. Hospira’s investigation concluded that the primary root cause was related to the potential for fluid ingress into the docking station. The design improvements have now been finalised and Hospira is replacing all existing docking stations with the new design.
