22,000 Possible Victims

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

I see the VA is pooh poohing the chance of vets getting hep C or HIV from unsterile prostate biopsies. Now they say no one has anthing to worry about. I read this in the Tampa Tribune today. 22,000 vets were possibly affected. I am not even sure I want a flu shot at the VAMC anymore. Can it really be this bad? If they drill my teeth am I going to get HIV because someone forgets to sterilized the drill?

Anything can happen and it can happen anywhere. Of course cheap medicine and strained budgets don't help.

[/quote I AM REALLY SURPRIZED, MY WIFE HAS A FLORIDA LICENSE AS A COSMETOLGY IN FLORIDA SHE ALSO HAD HER OWN SHOP TO KEEP THAT LICENSE SHE HAS TO TAKE A 18 HOUR COURSE ON AIDS ECT,IF SHE FAILS TO DO THIS SHE CANNOT RENEW HER LICENSE,THIS COURSE IS TOUGH. SHE ALSO HAS A LICENCE IN NJ HAD 2 SHOPS HERE, THE STATE COMES DOWN HARD ON AIDS ECT. VA SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF TREATMENT VETS GET THIS COURSE MUST BE TAKING EVERY 2 YEARSTHE TEST IS VERY DETAILED HOW THE STATE THINKS MORE ABOUT AIDS IN BEAUTY SHOPS THEN VA DOES ABOUT VETERANS SHOWS WHAT THEY THINK OF US.

You are right, Frank, we don't score high as a priority to this government. We vets are right down there with welfare mothers and the homeless.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
