Abstract

Insulin pumps operate almost universally in the work environment. Tubeless insulin pumps are a relatively recent development for management of insulin-dependent diabetes. This is the first report of location-dependent failure of insulin pump function, possibly due to external interference, occurring only in the setting of a medical center. A successful solution to this problem was designed and implemented. In conclusion, heightened awareness of this possibility in individuals who use tubeless insulin pumps in a medical environment would seem prudent, as when identified, it can be easily corrected.
