The Hepatitis C Outbreak was a horrible, frightening, and life changing experience for my clients and the thousands of other patients who had to be tested for the disease after state health officials learned of unsafe practices at the clinic ran by Dr. Desai. But some good has come out of the outbreak, including a training video that was distributed to medical officials across the country. An article in the R-J says another helpful resource will be unveiled at a press conference today.
The newspaper calls it a “toolkit” and says it will be given to doctor, patients, and families. “It includes information on possible treatments, transmission, symptoms, coping mechanisms and diet. It also deals with how patients should let loved ones know they have the disease that is contracted through infected blood — and how relationships may have to change,” the article says.
