VETERAN’S DAY 2021

GENERATIONS OF VALOR

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA

On Veterans Day, we want to express our deep gratitude to all those who have served in the US military.

  • Here’s one quick factoid: Gulf War-era veterans now make up the largest share of US veterans, having passed Vietnam-era veterans in 2016.
  • And another: The share of veterans who are women is projected to increase significantly, from 11% currently to 18% in 2046.

Thousands at Risk from Needle Contamination

[By Staff Reporters]

56372274

According to Derek Shore of Veterans Today, on February 7, 2009, the Army Medical Center announced that 2,114 diabetic patients treated at the hospital may be at risk for contracting blood-borne illnesses.

Improper Insulin Injections

Hospital administrators reported to local station, KFOX, that diabetic patients at the hospital were being injected with insulin improperly. A medical injection pen was being used on more than one patient. Even though the needle was changed with each patient, there are fears the insulin reservoir may have contained diseases from past patients, which has sparked the fear of contamination.

Assessment

Doctors said the patients could be at risk of being given blood-borne diseases from August 2007 until Friday, February 6, 2009.

William Beaumont Army Medical Center has set up a toll-free hotline at 1-866-770-0194.
