Recommended Posts

If you are at risk you may want to contact them instead of waiting for them to find you as you travel.


VA administrators say that the Tomah VA is in the process of notifying 592 veterans that they may be infected with Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or HIV after they received care from a dentist who works there, WEAU reports.

Acting Medical Center Director Victoria Brahm said the dentist used his own equipment, cleaned it, and reused it against VA regulations.

The VA states he did this for a period of one year, from October 2015 through October 2016.
