India's huge problem with blood transfusion HIV cases is horrifying, but not too surprising for a country that is still a little behind the United States when it comes to disease prevention. In the United States the blood would be tested before the transfusion to ensure nobody gets infected. Now we know what happens when you skip that vital step.
Yes, hospitals do everything they can to prevent the spread of the virus. If we are talking about third world hospitals, then maybe not so much but as far as in the United States I think that there is no question that proper safety protocols are being followed as mandated by law.
Proper safety measures in place to prevent spread of HIV in hospitals. The premise of the statement is that there is not a proper level of safety in place to prevent HIV. Like anything else in a dangerous world, nothing is risk free. Nothing is injury free. Best practices and measures can be, and are taken. This is much ado about nothing.
It does not appear as if proper safety measures are in place at hospitals to prevent the spread of HIV in hospitals. Although there are few reported cases in the United States, there were over 2,000 recently reported in India. This was from blood transfusions, which should be easily prevented.
