67 employees of a Otsuka Pharmaceutical company in New Jersey were given flu shots from a nurse who, (according to the pharmaceutical company) reused the syringe. Employees who received the vaccination were notified of the incident and investigators are saying that the nurse changed the needle, but used the same syringe repeatedly.
Total Wellness had a contract with the pharmaceutical company to provide the flu shots for its employees, but they are now claiming the nurse “failed to follow proper medical procedures and safeguards.”
