Possible HIV Exposure
BUFFALO---(WENY) Over 700 people may have been exposed to the HIV virus, Hepatits B, or Hepatitis C at the Buffalo VA Hospital between October 2010 and November 2012.

      This comes after hospital officials discovered unlabeled insulin pens, meant for single patients, which could have been used by any number of patients at the facility. A spokesperson for the Department of Veterans Affairs says "immediate action" was taken after the discovery was made. The VA of western New York will notify all those possibly exposed, later today and will make arrangements for free blood testing.
