The Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs has set a June 24 hearing for VA officials to talk about mistakes with endoscopic equipment that possibly exposed patients to infectious body fluids at Augusta; Murfreesboro, Tenn.; and Miami. An earlier report said the hearing would be June 28.
A House Committee on Veterans' Affairs subcommittee last week set a June 16 hearing on the VA mistakes.
The VA has warned more than 10,000 former patients at the three hospitals to get follow-up blood checks. Five have tested positive for HIV, and 43 have tested positive for hepatitis.
