Medical Malpractice: Some Veterans Not Notified of HIV Risk From Colonoscopies

The Miami Herald (7/7, Tasker) says that the Department of Veterans Affairs, “which in March 2009 revealed that more than 2,400 Miami-area veterans were given colonoscopies with improperly cleaned equipment, announced Tuesday that 79 veterans mistakenly were not notified they are at risk of contracting a disease such as HIV from the procedure.”

The agency, which “said the failure to contact the 79 veterans came from administrative errors relating to their charts,” has “temporarily removed Mary Berrocal, director of the Miami VA Healthcare System,” and replaced her with Thomas Capello, director of the Gainesville VA hospital, “until a 30-to-60-day investigation is complete.”
