Nurse administered flu shots to 67 employees at Otsuka Pharmaceutical
Department of Health said she had not changed syringe between patients
Employees were warned they may have been exposed to 'infected blood'
They're now being tested for HIV and hepatitis but results will take months

The only time a syringe should be reused is for lethal injections.
The syringe should be dumped, Old Sparky was better!
If you like your syringe, you can keep your syringe. Gotta love Zerocare!
Get your vaccines folks.
Wonder if the nurse is a junkie keeping the needles for herself or if she is selling them. Who knows how many other patients she has done this to.
this happened in Princeton NJ. I don’t know the law in NJ but she can drive a few mile to SW Connecticut and buy syringes over the counter, no Rx
'1 minute & 13 second video!!!
No name for the nurse? I wonder if the nurse had done this before? It might be helpful to others to identify the ‘medical professional.’
Well, you wouldn’t expect a pharmaceutical company to know anything about how medicine should be administered, would you?
Holy cats. I don’t even reuse syringes on my livestock!
Gosh that video is rather amazing.
WTF? If this person is not fired and her nursing license pulled, then there is a serious problem here. She probably should face criminal charges as well. Even I know that you must not reuse any portion of the injection instrument. Common sense tells you that, even without professional training.
If I am not mistaken, I believe the article says the same nurse failed to give the full injection at another location. Something terribly wrong with this person for sure.
I think it would have been more amazing had we been able to see it in action. Oh Lord, I didn’t just say that did I? LOL
Are they hiring third-world nurses on H1B visas now or is reusing a syringe an Obamacare cost reduction program?
We never had to worry about this crap in the old vaccine lines in school in the early 60’s.
I also remember when some nurse screwed up and did this same thing on the Today show to Katie Couric and Matt Lauer. She used the same needle on both of them...
"In addition to reusing the syringes, officials also say the nurse gave a dose of the flu vaccine that was less than recommended. As a result, they advised that the employees get another flu shot."
Looks like laziness.
I’m for using the hangman’s noose instead.
We can always watch “Angels With Dirty Faces”, one must wait until near the finish, but there’s action and the anticipation of the chair.
If we want a gas chamber fix, we can watch Susan Hayward in ‘I Want To Live’, there’s a full eight-minute sequence in the chamber!
OMG, how sick I am, of course I’m blaming you for this! ;)
