Baystate to notify heart surgery patients of infection risk


Baystate says a heater-cooler device known as the Stockert 3T was used during open-heart surgeries between 2012 and February of this year and is no longer used during the surgeries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified it as the source of bacterial transmission at hospitals in the U.S. and in Europe.
