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.

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.
