My aunt died as a result of an infection at one of these facilities. The two patients before her also contracted the same strain of infection. She had the unfortunate timing to be the last patient that day. Her infection was more extensive than the other two people before her. It is believed that the sterilization process was flawed in some way. There was one doctor and one other person there to perform the procedure. She didn't have a chance that day.She contracted Group A Streptococcous infection that ultimately ravaged her body and her heart could not fight the infection. She was 59 and a half. She was the rock of my family. She was my Aunt Sister. She was a lifelong resident of Maryland and a dilligent registered nurse professional.She served her family, friends and her profession in a dignnified manner and the manner of her death was anything but dignified. Please support passage of a "Sister's Law" to encourage regulation and oversight of these centers so someone else does not suffer the tragedy my family has.
