Disgusting violations
 

Today, I had nasal surgery at the Fairfax Surgical Center.  It was spotless.  Women should not have to up with disgusting violations like this at abortion facilities: 

At one clinic in Falls Church: “dark reddish substance on the inner surface of the hub where the vacutainer tube for blood collection attached … Staff #8 was asked to observe the inner surface of each vacutainer he/she had designated as clean. Staff #8 stated “That looks like blood. They aren’t clean.” At the same center, “An observation was conducted in Procedure room #1 at 11:16 a.m., with Staff #8. Staff #8 reported the room was ready for the procedures scheduled for the day. The observation revealed the procedure table had visible dried blood on the metal joints (Bilaterally) that connected the metal leg stirrup/supports.”

Gross! If this is how they operate with regulation, what was it like without it?  Let's not bring women back to the 1880's in surgical history.  Keep the regulations!
