Nine Ohio veterans have tested positive for hepatitis after a dentist at the Dayton VA Medical Center admitted to not washing his hands or changing gloves between patients during an 18-year period. A total of 375 veterans were tested for hepatitis and HIV, but test results are not yet complete. More information and a list of labs in contractual agreement with the Dayton center are available by calling the VA's hotline at 1-877-424-8214.
