From the GMR: FDA's Medical Product Safety Network (MedSun)

Please see the following message forwarded from NLM:
****
The Medical Product Safety Network (MedSun): http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/medsun/ provides a representative profile of reports from healthcare facilities, such as hospitals. MedSun improves understanding of medical device problems so FDA, healthcare facilities, clinicians, and manufacturers can better address safety concerns. Over 350 health care facilities, primarily hospitals, participate in the network. MedSun is unique because it educates health care professionals about the importance of monitoring, being aware of, and reporting device related problems to FDA and the manufacturer. MedSun also ensures that new safety information is rapidly communicated to the medical community thereby promoting patient safety.
