Catholic Health Partners, Mercy closely monitoring injectable steroid situation


10/10/2012 12:00:00 AM  --Mercy

Toledo, OH.  Last week three lots of an injectable steroid normally given for back pain were recalled due to the presence of a fungus. The product was distributed by the New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Mass. (also known as NECC).

 

None of the injectable steroid distributed by NECC was purchased by any Catholic Health Partners (CHP) hospital and Pain Management Clinic, including Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, Mercy St. Charles Hospital, Mercy St. Anne Hospital, Mercy Children’s Hospital, Mercy Tiffin Hospital, Mercy Defiance Hospital and Defiance Clinic, and Mercy Hospital of Willard. 


As always, the well-being of our patients and employees remain our highest priority.   We want to reassure you that we are monitoring this situation very closely – and that no CHP hospitals have purchased the injectable steroid distributed by NECC.

 

We will continue to work closely with the local Health Department, as well as, the Centers for Disease Control, to ensure the safety of all individuals at a Mercy facility.
