Maggots Found in Patient's Nose at VA Hospital
Friday July 30, 2004 9:34am


Salem, Va. (AP) - The Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salem has double-checked procedures for keeping out flies after a nurse found maggots in a patient's nose.

Spokeswoman Ann Benois says the patient was unharmed, and was unaware of the problem until a nurse discovered it. She says the insects were removed with a sterile wipe.

Benois calls it an isolated incident. Hospital officials could not recall a similar incident at the large health care facility for veterans.

Benois says that officials believe a fly managed to the enter the area of the hospital where the patient was staying and laid eggs that were initially too small to be detected.

She says all other patients in the unit were checked, with no other problems found.

Benois says a review team responded to the hospital wing where the July 3rd incident to check for more flies and give hospital employees tips on keeping them out.

Shocked


My ex's father was killed at a VA in New York City. The big one up there.

He went in to get his gall bladder removed, ended up with bile throughout his blood system and that swole him up almost TRIPLE his size. He went into toxic shock within the hour and never woke up again.

They (the gubment) had to pay $10Million.

What happened was they cut into his liver!!! and literally destoyed his billary system. I think part of the problem was that they allowed him to eat within 12 hours of the surgery. He was told nothing about it being something like 48 hours!!! It was terrible.

I heard that some of the doctors that work VA are docs that mad many malpractice suits as "regular doctors." It's funny how the quality lessens from the military hospitals like Walter Reed (the best IMO as far as ANY hospital) to a VA hospitals like the one here in DC which really sucks.
