Michigan: HIV Notifications a Hoax; Health Department Fears Fake Visitors, Letters, Calls Will Hurt Credibility
April 4, 2011
The Kent County Health Department (KCHD) is warning residents of three recent reports of an impersonator giving false information about exposure to HIV and other STDs.
KCHD takes patient confidentiality "very seriously," said Anstey. Staff members are required to wear an ID badge, and clients have the right to verify an employee's identity by examining the badge or by telephoning KCHD at 616-632-7171, he said.
