    Tribal health care probed amid fears of impropriety

     Federal tribal health officials are testing the blood of 21 members of a northern Nevada tribe to be sure they weren’t exposed to HIV or any other bloodborne diseases as part of an investigation into a potential violation of testing protocols at a tribal clinic’s wellness program.
    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Indian Health Services does not believe any members of the Fort McDermitt Paiute and Shoshone Tribe were exposed to disease last week at the clinic near the Nevada-Oregon line, said Dr. Marie Russell, deputy chief medical officer for the federal agency’s area office in Phoenix.
