Interventional HepC infection


Intravenous news: report “Three transplant patients at Mayo Clinic may have contracted hepatitis C from a Mayo employee who was fired Tuesday, the clinic reported Tuesday night. The employee, a male radiology technologist, was fired after admitting to “diverting drugs,” according to a written statement from the clinic.

A Mayo spokesman, Kevin Punsky, would not answer questions Tuesday but said a news conference is planned today to discuss details of the situation. The three patients had all undergone invasive procedures at the clinic’s interventional radiology unit, according to the clinic’s written statement.”
