January 20, 2017 – Central Penn Business Journal – The federal government fields some 70,000 reports a month on problems with medical devices, with implications ranging from minor to deadly. Patients, lawyers, doctors and others trying get a picture of possible problems with artificial knees, syringes and other devices don’t have the time to sift through all those reports. Madris Tomes of York County is trying to make sure they won’t have to.
York, PA – “A good number of attorneys have reported transvaginal mesh adverse events to the FDA on behalf of their clients/patients, but over 23,000 reports are from physicians,” says Madris Tomes, founder of Device Events and former FDA Program Manager. “Physicians are not great at reporting— this is a HUGE number.”
