Infection Prevention and Control Lapse at Burlington medical clinic

Details

An investigation by the Halton Region Health Department has identified that clients who received medical services from Dr. Korkis at the Ontario Institute of Facial Surgery located at 672 Brant St., Unit 405, in Burlington, may have been exposed to improperly cleaned instruments used for procedures. Improperly cleaned instruments carry a low risk of transmitting infectious diseases. The inspection was initiated following a patient complaint. Halton Region is not aware of any cases of infection associated with this clinic at this time.

As a precaution, the Halton Region Health Department is recommending that clients of this medical clinic contact their family doctor (or go to a walk-in clinic if they do not have a family doctor) to discuss testing for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
