Oops - Our Bad

Hospital on Long Island May Have Exposed 177 to Viruses ( - Registration Required)

"Nearly 180 patients of North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset were informed last week that they might have been exposed to H.I.V. or the hepatitis virus because instruments used for routine endoscopies might not have been properly disinfected.


Red flags went up at after hospital officials discovered that two employees had failed to test a disinfectant bath used to clean the endoscopes."
As bad as having to endure an endoscope in the first place, then this. Makes you want to swear off getting sick.

In fact, I think I will. From this moment on, I'm no longer going to get sick.
