Potential Hiv And Hepatitis Exposure At John Cochran Va Medical Center

John Cochran VA Medical Center located at 915 North Grand in St. Louis City.

E. Ryan Bradley is investigating wrongful infection and negligence claims against John Cochran VA Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The VA indicated unsterile dental equipment may have infected veterans with possible HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. So far, a majority of the people screened have a clean bill of health, however, others may be infected.

Rep. Russ Carnahan is calling for an investigation into the procedures and
responsibility of the John Cochran VA Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

On Wednesday, June 30, 2010, Representative Russ Carnahan stated John Cochran VA Medical Center contacted 1,812 veterans informing of possible hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection from dental work received at the center. Carnahan stated “As a nation we vow to protect those who protect us,” calling for a “full congressional investigation to get to the bottom of this.” While they VA Center stated the risk of infection is low, they are offering free blood tests to screen for potential infections. Carnahan called a hearing of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs in St. Louis on Tuesday, July 13.

Improperly sanitized dental tools are believed to be the cause of the spread of potential infection.

The VA estimates the potential for exposure began February 2009 and ended some time in March of 2010. The potential for infection was first brought to light in August 2009 by a former employee of the VA Center. Unbelievably, the issue was not addressed until an inspection was conducted 6 months later. .

E. Ryan Bradley is actively investigating all potential claims against the VA for personal injuries to any infected persons. Our firm has over 30 years of experience, gaining successful settlements and verdicts for plaintiffs with claims of negligence and medical malpractice. All consultations are free.
