After receiving phone calls from concerned employees, our law firm has initiated an investigation into the extremely unfortunate report of a nurse failing to follow proper medical procedures and safeguards while administering flu shots to Otsuka Pharmaceutical employees on September 30th. The reports indicate that a nurse contracted by healthcare provider TotalWellness failed to replace a syringe while administering a flu shot to multiple employees of Otsuka. The NJ Department of Health is also investigating the matter and it is recommended that the employees who had the flu shot undergo further testing to confirm that they have not contracted any infectious disease such as hepatitis B or C and HIV.
If you have any information regarding this matter, please contact me (Andrew D’Arcy) at 609-641-6200.
