VA Hospital Exposes Vets to HIV

Posted by Dave Blount at June 30, 2010 11:59 AM

"What about the Veterans Administration?" screech proponents of socialized medicine. "That's run by the government." Yes, I can tell:

John Cochran VA Medical Center in St. Louis has recently mailed letters to 1,812 veterans telling them they could contract hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) after visiting the medical center for dental work, said Rep. Russ Carnahan. …
The issue stems from a failure to clean dental instruments properly, the hospital told CNN affiliate KSDK.

Not to worry, bureaucrats have made everything right by setting up "education centers to help patients who may have been infected." If that doesn't help, maybe they'll convene a committee to discuss whether the problem should be discussed by future committees.

Let me predict the liberal rebuttal: "I told you not only homosexuals and junkies get HIV!"

On a tip from Wiggins.
