Issue

Hillrom received four (4) complaints between 29-Sep-2020 and 09-Apr-2021 of the Slingbar 450 becoming detached from the upper bracket of the Slingbar attachment on Liko M230 Mobile Lifts. The Slingbar is attached to the lifting arm through two brackets. These two brackets are attached to each other by a bolt and a sling plate that allows for rotation of the sling bar in one axis relative to the upper bracket.

The investigation identified the root cause of the failure to be that only one (1) instead of two (2) plastic bushings had been installed during production. The absence of the lower plastic bushings can lead to the center bolt wearing on the sling plate linkage mechanism. Excessive wear can result in inadequate attachment of the Slingbar to the lift, causing it to become detached and resulting in the patient being dropped from the lift.
