Insulin Pen Misuse at Griffin Hospital May Be Hospital Negligence
More than 3,000 diabetic patients who were treated at Griffin Hospital in Derby, Connecticut before May 2014 received a letter this past spring from the hospital informing them that they may be at an increased risk for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV.
One diabetic patient treated at hospital has been confirmed to have contracted hepatitis C as a result of vial misuse. Hospital staff used insulin pens on more than one patient.
