Baptist uses different brand of steroids for injections
The contaminated steroids that are making news are from a single pharmacy in Massachusetts, the New England Compounding Center. New England Compounding has reported to the federal Centers for Disease Control that it did NOT ship ANY of this steroid product to any facility in Kentucky. This would include all Baptist Health facilities.
Baptist uses a different product for these types of injections, which may be for back pain, neck pain, leg pain or any other pain caused by irritated spinal nerves.
Baptist Health has purchased other specialized drugs from New England Compounding which were not commercially available from other sources. These products have not been implicated in the current recall, but, out of an abundance of caution and regard for patient safety, Baptist has voluntarily removed these drug products from the shelf. Patient safety always comes first.
