You have GOT to be kidding???

Don't know if you guys have seen this, but a Las Vegas clinic may have exposed upwards of 40,000 people to Hep C through reuse of syringes (not needles) to administer medication. At least 6 people were confirmed to have contracted it through this clinic in this manner, and they are trying to track down all of the patients treated during that time to have them tested.

Unbelievable.

W T everloving F???!!!???


If any of those people die, I hope they charge the anesthesiologists with homicide. At the very least, they should be forced to undergo the Hep C treatment - 1 year for each person they infected.

I can't tell you how spitting mad this has made me!

I agree.

I belong to a monthly newsletter via email through the CDC and in every newsletter, there is something about a clinic/hospital/doctor trying to track down patients because there has been a mass-wide infection of Hepatitis C.

i don't have the energy to type more, but I just don't understand the stupidity and ignorance of people. Get rid of the damned syringe AFTER THE FIRST TIME YOU USE IT and this wouldn't be an issue.

eh, don't worry, Trish. Everything that's innoculated in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas.
