    Wisconsin Hospital Says Surgery Patients May Have Been Exposed to Brain Disease - Incredible Health - FOXNews.com







    Although the story doesn't say I'm assuming the hospital didn't know the woman had Creutzfeldt-Jakob at the time of her surgery. Otherwise why would the try to sterilize and re-use the instruments?

    Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease spreads through tainted surgical equipment...

    Fatal rare brain disease confirmed in N.H. patient; 15 possibly exposed
    21 Sept.`13 ~ A neurosurgery patient treated at a New Hampshire hospital this spring did have a rare brain disorder known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, health officials confirmed Friday. That means that 15 other people in three states may have been exposed to the invariably deadly infection through potentially tainted surgical equipment.
