Re: [IP] Old pumps
OK...I'll play the role of Devil's Advocate...but don't pumps require a
prescription? So how would you insure that all is 'OK' with the patient's
MD? We would nhot be 'pharmacists' and the like. How do the pump companies
feel about this? I would suspect that they would be able to take some sort
of legal action, because they are not allowed to dispense them without a
prescription so why should we be able to do so? I guess that I kinda' equate
it to ticket scalping. Yes, they are used, but Disetronic pumps shut down
after a certain amount of time...so would you be responsible for some sort of
warranty...if not, would the people receiving them be expecting one. Laws
are different in each state.
I just don't want the list and you, Michael, to get into any trouble about
this. I have a set of Disetronic H-tron V100 pumps that I would gladly
donate, but would be concerned about the above issues! Any attorneys on the
list that could help with the issue? Don't get me wrong...it's a great idea!
Just my two cents worth!

tax write off.
