According to federal officials, patients’ health might be at risk as a shortage of properly packaged drugs is there and this could be doing this. It has been stated that vials meant for just one person might be given to more than one patient at clinics.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that there were some serious infections found among 10 patients in Arizona and Delaware and they were hospitalized for this as well. These infections took place due to clinic staff injecting people with drugs taken from vials meant for one-time use.
There was a patient who was found dead after he was given one of the injections but it has not been proved that it happened due to the injection. It was also seen in Delaware last year that about nine people were infected with bacteria that were from their own bodies.
A growing problem was illustrated by the cases, according to the CDC and since 2007 there have been about 20 like incidents.
The report states, “This report reminds health-care providers of the serious consequences of multipatient use of single-dose vials that can occur even when health-care workers believe they are being careful.”
