Southern Nevada Health District advising patients who received injected anesthesia medication at Las Vegas facility in recent years to be tested immediately

Las Vegas, Nev. (Martindale-Hubbell Newswire/PRWeb) – March 11, 2008The Law Office of Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright is accepting new clients who may have been exposed to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or HIV due to the admitted negligence of the Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada, under the direction of Dr. Dipak Desai.

The Southern Nevada Health District is advising patients who received injected anesthesia medication at the Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada, located at 700 Shadow Lane in Las Vegas, during the time period of March 2004 and January 11, 2008, to be immediately tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. It is recommended that patients contact their primary care physicians or health care providers to schedule the appropriate tests.

Litigation in Clark County District Court has already commenced for the six identified cases in this matter, although it is thought that as many as 40,000 individuals may have been exposed and therefore infected. The spouses and families of those infected with Hepatitis B and HIV are also at risk. The attorneys at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright anticipate that the Courts will allow a class action in this matter, possibly becoming the largest medical malpractice case in Nevada.

Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright’s commitment to its new clients is to walk them through the litigation process, to provide them with updated information as it is received, and to ensure that their rights are protected. In the event class action is allowed by the Courts, the firm will ensure that its clients become included as a party.

It is highly recommended, if anyone feels they have been exposed, to immediately contact their health care provider to schedule testing. If any patient is uninsured, or does not have the financial means for testing, they should advise Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright and the firm will make arrangements for the testing.
