Saltzer Medical Group and Les Bois Surgery Center NOT recipients of tainted medications
A recent outbreak of fungal meningitis related to medications injected for pain management has been identified.
Through notification of the CDC and our own investigation we have determined Saltzer Medical Group was not a recipient of the tainted medication.
Source of the outbreak was identified as the New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Massachusetts. It was also determined that all tainted medications were compounded. Saltzer received no medications from there, nor do we utilize compounded Methylprednisolone Acetate.
All injection medications provided by Saltzer physicians in Saltzer offices and the Les Bois Surgery Center were provided by McKesson Health Care and determined to be free of the tainted substance. According to McKesson it is their policy to purchase only substances approved by the FDA, and no compounds.
The physicians of Saltzer Medical Group take your health very seriously. If you have any questions regarding this information please call 463-3067.
