A San Jose hospital owned and operated by Oakland's Kaiser Permanente is being investigated for dumping medical waste, including bags of human blood, at a local landfill. According to a story in the San Jose Mercury News, Kaiser's Santa Teresa and other hospitals did the dirty deeds between April 6 and April 19, dumping perhaps more than 100 pounds of the viscous stuff on seven different occasions. Roughly thirty tons of contaminated garbage had to be specially treated, the reports adds. We know the '80s are back, but this is getting ridiculous.
