"caring for life"
Fresenius Kabi’s primary responsibility is to help ensure the best possible therapy for patients. In line with our mission “caring for life”, Fresenius Kabi is committed to ensuring Propofol is only used for its intended and clinically approved medical purpose. We object to its use in any manner not in accordance with them:
- Fresenius Kabi has voluntarily initiated actions to impose distribution controls to ensure safe, appropriate and effective access to Propofol in the United States.
- A precondition: Immediate access by medical professionals in all parts of the country must be maintained.
Clearly the use of Propofol for lethal injections is contrary to our mission and not in line with FDA approved indications for Propofol. Fresenius Kabi is doing its utmost to prevent the use of Propofol in executions.
