HEALTH SCREENING EXPOSES FT. McDERMITT NATIVE AMERICANS TO DISEASES
Reno station KOLO reported that members of the Piaute tribe at Fort McDermitt (right on the Oregon-Nevada border) who participated in a health screening in December, were exposed to HIV and both forms of hepatitis. The Indian Health Service ran this event, which checked the usual vital signs such as temperature and blood pressure. Blood was also drawn to check blood glucose levels, and in this case the same needle was reused. It is unimaginable that any licensed health professional would do such a thing. I have no knowledge of the specifics of this situation, but it does not take much imagination to wonder if this is another case of a government agency not properly checking the qualifications of those they hire. This nightmare will haunt these people for years.
