Surgical Infections Confirmed in "a Number of Patients" at Porter Adventist Hospital

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment in a statement released on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, confirmed that "a number of patients" who had surgery at Porter Adventist Hospital between July 2016 and April 2018 suffered surgical site infections. Though no link has been admitted between these viral and bacterial infections (number unknown) and improperly sterilized instruments used at Porter Adventist Hospital, we fully expect such a link to be made in court - even if we have to prove it ourselves.

Did you have surgery at Porter Adventist Hospital in Denver any time from January 1, 2016, through present day?

According to a Critical Warning Letter sent by Porter Adventist Hospital to its patients, they failed to comply with mandatory sterilization protocols on surgical equipment during this time period. Based on their breach of these critical safety protocols, Porter Adventist Hospital is warning its surgical patients during this time period that they may have been exposed to serious infectious diseases including HIV, hepatitis B and C, and bacterial or viral infections. Porter Adventist Hospital is recommending that these patients be immediately tested for these potential infectious diseases.
