After x-ray done he comes back and asked me if I'm sure I don't take any meds I said yes I'm sure why is that and doctor says cause one your chart it says positive for HIV .. I hit the roof scared ..


There have been negligence cases where a lab error resulted in a patient being told they were HIV+ when they were not, and the patient was put on a drug treatment regimen for a long time, with all kinds of adverse effects. If it's corrected soon afterwards, the damages are less.
