PostSubject: 3 new infections tied to tainted steroids, says state health officials   Tue Jan 22, 2013 1:39 am

I was talking with one of my wifes many aunts over christmas and she mentioned how she worked at one of the clinics in Michigan where this has happened. She felt awful about it and was disgusted with the company that allowed this to happen. Makes you question if you are truly safe when it comes to healthcare these days. I don't see a doctor unless I absolutely have to.

LANSING, Mich. — Michigan health officials have reported three more infections in the past week linked to contaminated steroids supplied by a Massachusetts pharmaceutical company.

The Michigan Department of Community Health says at least 244 people have been infected with illnesses including fungal meningitis that are part of a national disease outbreak. The steroids are used in injections to treat neck and back pain.

The department reports that at least 15 people have died in the outbreak, unchanged from last Monday.

As of Friday, the department says there have been 68 cases of fungal meningitis, 153 epidural abscesses, one stroke and 22 peripheral joint infections in Michigan tied to the steroids.
