VIHA has ‘procedural’ issue with the News

VIHA takes issue with descriptor in Alberni news article.

To the Editor,

Re: Patients tested article, Sept. 30

Just wanted to clarify in your article, while most of your references were correct (i.e. the patients received procedures), one line has caused some confusion, and I see that you have indicated that I said it, which I did not, although I note it is not an actual quote.

The following line refers to patients being “operated on”.  This is not the case as they were not surgeries or operations, rather procedures, as described in the information that I e-mailed to you that day.

Just wanted you to know.
