Here's a dose of horrifying to wake you up in the morning:
For 2 years Salem Hospital in Massachusetts was risking exposing people to HIV and hepatitis if they received IV medications in that hospital.
Nearly 450 people were potentially infected thanks to this extreme carelessness.
The hospital was first made aware of the possible exposures earlier this year and the practice was immediately corrected, according to a statement.
What was the practice? The news stories and the hospitals don't say. But apparently, systems are so messed up there that people didn't realize they were possibly spreading infections for two years.
"We sincerely apologize to those who have been impacted and we remain committed to delivering high-quality, compassionate health care to our community," the hospital said.
"Sorry, we royally screwed up and tried to give you AIDS! But I promise we can still be trusted!"
So far, thank God, no one who has come back in has tested positive. But there are still many tests left to be done.
Another step down the long and tragic road to societal collapse?
