Sauder Schelkopf is investigating potential class action lawsuits on behalf of hundreds of patients at Salem Hospital in Massachusetts. It has been reported that hundreds of patients “may have been exposed to hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV due to improper administration of their IV medications. . . .”
The potential exposures reportedly occurred “over roughly two years and involved patients who needed an endoscopy, a procedure where doctors use a small camera to look inside the body to detect diseases.”
It was reported that ‘[p]otentially exposed patients were notified via the hospital’s online portal, Patient Gateway, and through email. If patients didn’t immediately respond to their notification, the hospital called patients and sent them letters. . . .”
Sauder Schelkopf has litigated Hepatitis C cases in Washington and Denver. In Washington, an emergency room nurse allegedly infected with Hepatitis C was injecting herself with a partial dose of narcotics intended for her patients and then injecting the remaining dose with the same needle into her patients. Read about it here. In Denver, a surgical technician exposed nearly 3,000 patients to HIV. Read about it in the Denver Post. Our attorneys also filed the first case against Walgreens and Theranos related to misrepresentations made concerning its “disruptive” blood testing. Read about it in USA Today.
