Hasan and HIV

November 21, 2009

Poor poor Major was worried about HIV.   I wonder why??  Oh wait,   cuz he hung around a strip club??  Or as the article stated,  he was afraid of a needlestick??!!!  That is totally outrageous.  I can’t think of many psychiatrists  that perform phlebotomy.   That is a huge stretch.   He had a bunch of HIV medicine in his apartment.

So, the man was afraid of his HIV test the week before he massacred all those people.

And he is now paralyzed from the waist down.

Somehow I just can’t muster up much feeling for this terrorist.

Many many people dropped the ball in this case.  One of them was this woman Lieutenant Colonel Melanie Guerrero.  Imagine saying that in the world,  outside of the military.  “He would not be doing any real patient care”!!!!   No real patient care???????   What does she think dealing with the soldiers who are going to and coming home from the war zones.

This is absolutely beyond the pale.  It is positively outrageous and I hope some of these people are made accountable for their actions in this case.

Major Nidal Hasan seemed worried about the results of an HIV blood test taken a week before the Fort Hood shooting rampage, according to federal investigators piecing together background details on Hasan’s life.

The suspected gunman in the massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, Nov. 5, 2009, was identified by ABC News as Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. He appears here in a Defense Department photograph.

The information came from a member of the Fort Hood medical staff who was in the building where Hasan is accused of opening fire on November 5 and killing 13 people.

The investigators said there was no indication that Hasan was HIV positive, although a bottle of medicine used to treat HIV-positive individuals, Combivir, was seen in Hasan’s apartment by ABC News last week. Medical experts say many doctors also have Combivir on hand in case of an accidental needle stick. A second drug seen in the apartment, clarithromycin, is an antibiotic designed to treat respiratory infections. However, it can also be used to treat specific opportunistic infections in patients with HIV……………………………….

Guerrero told ABC News his performance problems stemmed from his lack of competence in the intensive care unit, including problems with recommending the proper medications or coming up with the right kind of patient treatment plan.
