The Institute of Public Health (ISP) ruled out HIV transmission to 15 underage children operated on at Rancagua Hospital.
Last Wednesday, 24 Hours revealed the case of a mother whose 11-year-old daughter was found to have HIV reactive after tonsillectomy was performed in a health care facility.
On that occasion, the girl's mother accused the hospital of using materials that were not sterile during surgery on her daughter.
After that, the ISP made a second sample, which eventually ruled out the possibility that the child was infected, as confirmed by the director of Rancagua Hospital, Fernando Millard Martínez.
With this report from ISPs, hospitals also ruled out transmission in 14 other children who underwent tonsillectomy on the same day as the youngest of 11 years.
