A Wisconsin health clinic has warned that 2,345 patients may have been exposed to HIV, hepatitis, or other blood-borne diseases by a nurse who improperly used diabetic injection devices. The nurse, whose job involved teaching newly diagnosed diabetics how to use insulin pens, used the same pen every time when demonstrating the device on patients, Reuters reports. She changed the needle each time but backwashes of blood may have contaminated the device itself.
