Coastal Health and Wellness Clinics, located in Galveston and Texas City may have possibly exposed roughly 9,000 to 9,500 patients to several infections. Patients who visited the clinics between March 2015 through February 2018 may have been exposed to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV.
As of March 26, 2018, the Coastal Health and Wellness Clinic are under investigation by the Galveston County Health District after an accreditation survey released revelations about infection control practices at the clinic. Currently, the Galveston County Health District is encouraging all patients to get tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV to ensure no disease transmission took place.
“I have represented thousands of individuals of Galveston County in the past, and I care deeply for them and their community. How a medical clinic failed to follow the most basic sanitary health protocols is beyond me. However, I intend to get down to the bottom of this and hold those responsible for their gross negligence.” – firm founder, Chad Pinkerton.
