Four Hundred Patients Called for Tests after Hospital Errors

Four hundred patients who were treated at the St. Jansdal Hospital in Harderwijk must have their blood tested for hepatitis and HIV, after it was discovered that a medical instrument used had not been properly cleaned. Last week three hundred patients were called in to the Rijnland Hospital in Leiderdorp for blood tests after it was found that instruments had not been sterilized according to standards. Last year many patients had to be checked in two other hospitals because of similar problems.
