Letter to the Editor of the Casper Star-Tribune Regarding Sheridan Memorial Hospital and the Wyoming Department of Health


March 16, 2012

Editor:

Regarding the March 14 CS-T article, "Report shows Sheridan hospital failed to sterilize equipment last year," by Joan Barron. Claims by Sheridan Memorial Hospital and the Wyoming Department of Health that there have been no infections or complications reported in relation to the hospital's failure to adequately sterilize the laryngeal airway masks (LMAs) between surgical patient uses is ludicrous for two reasons.
