Congressional hearing held regaring conditions at Veterans hospital in St. Louis
U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt (R-Mo) gives his opening remarks during a congressional hearing at the Thomas Eagleton Federal Courthouse on the sterilization practices at the John Cochran Veterans Hospital in St. Louis on July 13, 2010. The panel is looking into reports of dirty and contaminated dental equiptment which led to the sending of 1812 letters to veterans who may have had dental procedures done at the St. Louis location. The letter asked for those people to return to the hospital to be tested for HIV or hepatitis. Former Medical Supply Technician at the hospital Earlene Johnson, was fired after bringing the dirty equiptment problem to the attention of her superiors. UPI/Bill Greenblatt
