Fresenius Medical Care’s Patient Engagement May Have Saved Lives During Superstorm Sandy
Jul 2 15
Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), a division of Fresenius Medical Care hailed a new study by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) this week showing that dialysis patients who received treatments immediately before Super Storm Sandy experienced a much better survival rate and less frequent visits to the hospital. FMCNA provided pre-storm, weekend care to a wide section of the area surveyed by the study, indicating that the company’s efforts made an appreciable difference in patients’ lives. The HHS study based on 13,836 patients who received dialysis across the State of New Jersey and New York City found that receiving early dialysis reduced the chances of needing emergency room care or hospitalization by 20% and 21%, respectively. Most importantly, patients who received early treatment showed a 28% lower chance of death 30 days after the storm.

Fresenius Medical Care North America Announces Voluntary Recall of 56 Lots of NaturaLyte(R) Liquid Bicarbonate Concentrate
May 21 14
Fresenius Medical Care North America announced that its voluntary recall of 56 lots of NaturaLyte(R) Liquid Bicarbonate Concentrate, 6.4 liters (intended for use in hemodialysis machines) from distribution has been classified as a Class 1 Recall. The affected lots were produced in its Montreal, Canada facility and are being recalled because they may develop higher bacteria levels than is allowed by the company's internal specification during their shelf life. Laboratory testing has identified the bacteria as Halomonas (species 1, 2, 3), a Gram Negative bacteria, typically found in water with high salinity (salt concentration). According to a few case reports in the medical literature, bacterial contamination of the dialysate may lead to bacteremia or systemic infection. The dialysis filter (dialyzer) and the use of the Diasafe(TM) filter or equivalent create an effective bacteria and endotoxin barrier that makes this event unlikely.
