177 patients possibly exposed to HIV
CNN |
"A hospital notified 177 patients that they may have been exposed to HIV or hepatitis because equipment used to check their digestive systems might not have been properly cleaned... The hospital said it did not have records that medical instruments used for upper endoscopies or colonoscopies were properly disinfected for procedures performed from April 28 to May 10. Workers apparently failed to test disinfectant levels in the water used in a cleaning machine."
