(MCMECHAN, W.Va.) — Medical officials in Ohio and West Virginia are warning patients from a pain management clinic in West Virginia that they need to be tested after the clinic was allegedly caught reusing needles.
Ohio Deputy Health Commissioner Rob Sproul says patients at Valley Pain Management could have been exposed to HIV as well as Hepatitis B and C.
“They need to get in contact with their primary physician,” Sproul said. “If they have insurance, go see the doctor and get tested.”
The clinic is located in McMechan, West Virginia, near the Ohio border.
Some residents are considering legal action while some are urging a criminal investigation.
