Infection Control Breach at Stittsville Medical Clinic
This post was written by Andrea Girones:
Updated July 27 2018 – Numerous Ottawa families were shocked to receive a letter from the Main Street Family Medical Centre this week advising that they had been possibly exposed to unclean instruments at the clinic. Over 4600 patients may have been affected and have been asked to return to the clinic to undergo testing for HIV and Hepatitis among other illnesses.
Such a breach of infection and control protocols may well cause an unknown infection that could change a person’s life. Patients of all ages, including the elderly and children, have been notified.
The Notice from Ottawa Public Heath
Girones Lawyer offers free consultations to all people who may have been affected. It may be that we will need to wait until the test results have come back, but anyone infected should seek legal advice immediately.
It is our sincere hope that no one has been adversely affected.
