Tampa VA Doc Uses Unsterilized Implant

Comments Off

In a hastily called briefing for Congressional staffers, authorities at the James A. Haley VA Center in Tampa announced that an unsterilized cranial implant was placed into a patient last month. The mistake was nearly duplicated a few weeks later at the same hospital. The hosptial officials waited nearly two weeks before notifying anyone of the error!

Of course, the usual political recriminations followed. The question remains-are the errors being addressed and fixed or will we see more political posturing?
