Dark things happen in this world, and we really wish that was never the case. We hope there's a solution out there somewhere, because we refuse to believe that something like this is just a way of life.

700+ patients at the Buffalo Veterans Administration Center may have been exposed to HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C because of accidental reuse of insulin pens. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
