What does a medical device recall do?

A medical device recall can typically be started by the company that made the device, as a voluntary recall, or by the government. Many companies, when they learn of issues that would mandate a recall, will simply issue it on their own to avoid having one issued by the government, but this is not always the case.

Understanding defective medical device recalls

When a manufacturer becomes aware of problems with one of its medical devices, it notifies the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that one of two actions need to happen. The first is a correction, which deals with fixing a problem where the medical device is sold or used. The second is a removal, which involves removing the medical device from where it is sold or used.

Lack of method to track costs of recalled defective devices

Auditors have concluded recently that there is a lack of a method to properly track the costs of recalled defective medical devices. Medicare has already spent billions of dollars on recalled devices, which has led to a "significant cause for concern." Despite this concern, the government lacks a method to track the costs.
