If you had surgery at the Scripps Green Hospital in La Jolla, CA between May 19, 2013 and June 7, 2013, you may have been exposed to dangerous bloodborne pathogens.
Who is in danger?
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP is currently investigating a lawsuit on behalf of individuals who had surgery at the Scripps Green Hospital where a former surgical technician was recently indicted by a federal grand jury for stealing pain medication. It is alleged that this former employee was also caught removing a syringe containing pain mediation and attempting to use it while he was employed by Scripps Green Hospital in 2013. Scripps Green fired the former surgical technician but at the time failed to notify surgical patients that they may be at risk.
