It never fails to amaze me the ignorance of certain professionals who have no problems putting other people’s lives in jeapardy. An idiot doctor in Long Island took it upon himself to put his patients lives at risk by re-using needles, thus exposing them to all types of horrible diseases.
He needs to be prosecuted for attempted murder and he needs to lose his license for mal practice:
Dozens of patients of a doctor on Long Island are being urged to get tested for HIV and hepatitis after the health department says he reused syringes.
The patients were given flu shots at the Dr. E. Jacob Simhaee’s office in Manhasset.
Long Island reporter Emily Smith has the story.
The Nassau County health department says 36 patients who received flu shots from Dr. Simhaee have already been told to get tested.
This time, health department officials notified the public right away, instead of waiting three years like in a similar case this fall.
“I wouldn’t go to him,” area resident Pina Vaccaro said. “Of course, I wouldn’t.”
That’s how it seems everyone is reacting to a second outrageous scenario in Nassau County of a licensed doctor reusing syringes.
No one answered the door today at the office of Dr. Simhaee, a Manhasset OBGYN now deemed by the state and county to have put 36 of his patients coming in for flu shots at risk for HIV and hepatitis.
“Clearly was an oversight on his part,” said Dr. Abbey Greenberg, acting commissioner of the Nassau County Department of Health.
It is a significant oversight, considering once a needle is pulled out of the arm, a vacuum is created that leaves a little backflow of blood in the syringe. At that point, the next patient is exposed to blood-borne diseases.
