BECKLEY, WV (AP) – West Virginia health officials are urging some patients at Mountain State Vascular Clinic in Beckley to get blood tests checking for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV after possible exposure.
News outlets reported this week that a letter to patients said the clinic reported single-use syringes were used on more than one patient during invasive procedures.
State health officials are investigating and said in a statement that no infections have been confirmed. They said certain patients who visited the practice between Oct. 27, 2020, and July 7, 2021, should get tested.
A Mountain State Vascular official told The Register Herald that he said he believes only a handful of patients were affected.
