On February 25, 2016, Officials at Shore Medical Center, a southern New Jersey hospital, notified 213 patients they may have been exposed to HIV or hepatitis B or C because of drug tampering that may have caused patients to come in contact with an employee's blood.
WHAT HAPPENED AT THE SHORE MEDICAL CENTER?
A former pharmacist at the hospital allegedly tampered with the drugs by replacing morphine with saline solution in vials that were administered to patients, according to an internal investigation at the hospital and the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
The ex-employee was arrested last month and charged with drug tampering, theft and drug possession. In its letter to patients, the hospital said the tampering may have caused patients to come in contact with the ex-employee's blood and urged patients to get tested.
