South Florida Law Firm Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Offers Around-the-Clock Free Legal Advice to Broward General Contaminated IV Patients
Date:10/7/2009

The South Florida law offices of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene are taking a proactive stance in helping potential victims of bodily fluid transfer due to the negligence of a veteran nurse at Broward General Medical Center, as stated in the Sun-Sentinel October 7, 2009. Health officials admit the nurse reused the same saline bag amongst 1,851 patients in administering Gadolinium MRA contrast dye for cardiac chemical stress tests. The patients are expected to receive a letter from Broward General early this week urging them to seek physician administered screening for Hepatitis B and C and HIV/AIDS.

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 7, 2009 -- Last night's NBC 6 Miami 7pm news broadcast broke the story "Broward (General) health officials have confirmed that a veteran nurse may have used IV bags contaminated with other patients' fluids while administering saline solution to patients who came to the hospital for cardiac chemical stress tests. …the nurse routinely used the same bag on different patients. As many as 1,851 patients may have been impacted."

Over the weekend Broward General Hospital sent 1,851 certified letters to the potential victims of this bodily fluid backflow scare asking that the patients contact a physician immediately to administer Hepatitis B and C and HIV/AIDS screening.
