The facility, in Tomah, Wisconsin, is in the process of notifying 592 veterans that they may have become infected.
At a press conference Tuesday, acting medical center director Victoria Brahm said the dentist at the center was using his own equipment from October 2015 through October 2016, by cleaning and re-using the instruments which is a violation of VA regulations. The facility’s rules require them to use sterile and disposable equipment.
The VA is offering free screenings for all those veterans and will provide free medical treatment to anyone who tests positive for an infection.
