Dirty instruments cause scare in St. Louis

Posted:

Unclean medical utensils are causing a scare for some dental patients at a VA Clinic in St. Louis.

1,800 patients are being notified by mail about contact with possibly dirty instruments, which could have carried viruses.

The doctor wouldn't say whether any employees have been punished for washing the utensils by hand, instead of with a machine.
