St. Thomas Served with Subpoena in Meningitis Case

A subpoena requesting hundreds of records has been served on the St. Thomas Outpatient Neurosurgical Center where dozens of patients were injected with a fungus-laden spinal steroid from the New England Compounding Center (NECC) that is  being blamed for a nationwide fungal meningitis outbreak. The Tennessean reports that the subpoena seeks not only the names and addresses of all patients injected with the tainted methylprednisolone acetate, but also extensive records about the outpatient center’s dealings with the New England Compounding Center. It also seeks records identifying any patients who were treated with other drugs from NECC.
