Southeast Georgia Health System Patients Safe in Meningitis Scare
Southeast Georgia Health System would like to calm any local concerns regarding the national reports about patients who may have received a steroid injection linked to an outbreak of a form of meningitis. Southeast Georgia Health System does not purchase steroid injections from the pharmaceutical company in question. Patients of the Health System and its related clinics and offices are safe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each facility that carried the steroid should have contacted anyone who may have received an injection from the pharmacy that supplied the steroid products. The Health System patients are safe from the meningitis scare. However, patients who are concerned about whether they received the steroid injection in question from another source outside the Health System should contact their physician.
