Not as bad off as Americans being probed by law enforcement

Nearly 30 Men Receive Some of the Worst News Possible Following Invasive Medical Exams | Video |

About 30 patients got bad news from Seattle’s Swedish Medical Center after errors in the sterilization process of their ultrasound probes.  Twenty seven men who had prostate exams this past fall got letters from the center, suggesting that they undergo testing for Hepatitis B and C, as well as HIV.

Pharmer thinks that those patients are not facing as serious a risk as those Americans who are being probed on the side of the road, or at airports by “officials” who don’t wash their hands or change gloves between gropings.
