Reason/Issue There is a potential issue with the qube Compact Monitors that are “docking station ready” that have had a port cover plate removed allowing the monitor to be used with the optional qube docking station. If a docking station ready qube Monitor is powered up undocked, connected to the network via an Ethernet hardwire connection, and then disconnected from the Ethernet hardwire connection and inserted into a qube docking station, a switch condition will cause the monitor to lose the network connection. All bedside alarms will continue to function normally.
Recall Action Recall for Product Correction
Recall Action Instructions If the users dock the monitor and lose network connection, power down the monitor and turn it back on to restore normal function. To prevent this error from happening, users are advised to avoid transitioning from hardwire ethernet connection to a docking station without powering down the device.
