St. John’s Hasn’t Used Tainted Steroids

St. John's

St. John’s Medical Center has issued a statement in light of the recent national news about the fungal meningitis outbreak that resulted from a steroid injection commonly used for back pain. St. John’s says that the product in question has not been used at St. John’s Medical Center, St. John’s Living Center or at St. John’s-owned physician clinics. Hospital officials say a thorough check of the hospital and clinic medication inventory has determined that St. John’s has not purchased the medication in question or any other medications from the New England Compounding Center for use here. None-the-less, anyone with any concerns is encouraged to call the hospital Community Relations office to discuss those concerns with a hospital official.

If you’re a die-hard hunter, you’re probably already hunkered down in a field waiting for the geese to come in, out in the timber trying […]
  • Not all bad news in judge’s decision to relist wolves - September 30, 2014
