The Tri-County Spinal Care Center located at 8626 Dorchester Road in Charleston was suprised to find out that 3 of its patients contracted hepatitis B after getting injections there.
The Tri-County Spinal Care Center was notified on Friday, May 17 that they were under investigation by DHEC. Apparently, three patients were infected after receiving spinal injections on the same day in February.
The Spinal Care Center is cooperating with DHEC’s investigation and 18 patients who may be at risk have been notified.
DHEC ordered the North Charleston clinic to cease and desist all invasive procedures after the three patients were recently diagnosed with the disease. Tri-County Spinal Care Center will be required to provide DHEC with: access to the building, clinic records and employees, and patient information as requested.
Concerned patients can call the clinic at 843-225-7746 to speak with a doctor.
