DAYTON, Ohio — “Officials at a Veterans Administration hospital in southwest Ohio say nine patients have tested positive for hepatitis in preliminary screenings conducted because of a dentist who failed to change gloves and sterilize instruments properly between patients.

Dayton VA director Guy Richardson says 527 of the 535 people seen by the dentist have been contacted for free screenings. He tells the Dayton Daily News that of 375 tested so far, there were seven hepatitis C positives and two hepatitis B positives. No one has tested positive for HIV.”
