The Public Health Institute (ISP) excluded the transmission of HIV to 15 minors who were operated in Rancagua Hospital.
Last Wednesday, 24 hours, revealed the case of a mother whose 11-year-old daughter was diagnosed with reactive HIV after tonsillectomy in a health facility.
On this occasion, the mother of the girl accused the hospital of using non-sterile materials at the time of surgery for her daughter.
Then the ISP made a second sample, which eventually ruled out the possibility that the baby was infected, as Rancagu Hospital director Fernando Millard Martinez confirmed.
With this news from ISP, the hospital also excluded the infection in another 14 children who had experienced tonsillectomy on the same day as the youngest of 11 years.
