Hepatitis C Scare At Las Vegas Clinics

"Six Already Infected, 40,000 To Be Tested; Unsafe Injection Practices Likely Culprit"

How in the world did this not get more coverage?

I KNOW! I thought the same thing!

Thanks for the awards BTW! I will blog about that this weekend. I'm so excited that anyone reads my blog regularly!

This LV story is horrifying. I have a friend who contracted HepC from a blood transfusion 20+ yrs ago. She researched and learned that it was largely known in the medical community that a decent % of blood supply was infected but hospitals weren't spending the $5 to have it tested. Infuriating! BUt this LV story is outright medical abuse, not just neglect.
