OGH and Lord Finan are trying to say that they were taking proactive measures after the news report broke about the VA hospital in Buffalo re-using needles. In fact, it had been going on for some time at OGH, and they only began their "investigation" hours after the VA story broke. Clearly a case of CYA. Also, several departments at OGH were called together for meetings the morning the Buffalo news stations arrived at OGH. The reason for the meetings? To let everyone know that they were, under no circumstances, allowed to speak to anyone from the media. If they did, it was an automatic termination. And why is that? Because they're scared S***LESS. A nurse had been fired from OGH shortly before the news story about them became public, supposedly for improper conduct. The improper conduct was, in fact, re-using the needles. That's a little piece of info that the hospital has tried to keep quiet. And the local attorney is not the only one who is preparing a claim. There are several others, primarily in the Buffalo area, who are doing the same thing. The Joint Commission, the NYS Dept. of Health, and the Catt. County Dept. of Health have been all over OGH like flies on honey since this all started. If OGH loses their accreditation with the Joint Commission, they're screwed and they know it. Good luck digging yourself out of this hole, Tim.
