Boston Medical Center says five patients may have been exposed to Hepatitis B virus
“Recently, we became aware that a small number of patients were potentially exposed to (the) Hepatitis B virus and five patients are potentially at risk from the exposure,” said BMC spokeswoman Jennifer Watson. “We have communicated with these patients and are monitoring them closely. Additional measures have been put in place to avoid the possibility of a similar exposure in the future.”
