Insulin pen warnings might not have reached VA
The word coming from officials at the Buffalo VA Medical Center is that the facility might not have received warnings about the reuse of insulin pens.
The VA has faced heavy criticism for exposing more than 700 patients to dangerous viruses by reusing insulin pens indiscriminately over a two year period. The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued separate warnings against such practices.
An investigation into the matter continues.
