Porter Adventist Hospital Media Statement April 6, 2018

Porter Adventist Hospital is providing a further update following our announcement on Thursday, April 5. In coordination with the CDPHE, we have made the decision to offer patients who underwent orthopedic or spine surgical procedures from February 21, 2018 to April 5, 2018 the opportunity to be tested for bloodborne pathogens. As has been done previously, we will be notifying these patients directly via a written letter and will be providing information regarding surgical site infections and bloodborne pathogens. As always, we are committed to patient safety and supporting them through this process.
