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.
