The State

October 18, 1987

A nurse faces disciplinary action after her medical bag, containing two syringes which may have been contaminated with the AIDS virus, was reportedly stolen from her car, University of California at San Francisco officials said. The nurse, Patricia Curran, will be reprimanded for violating rules of a national research project when she left her medical bag unattended in Point Richmond in Contra Costa County. The research project is part of a $3-million, four-year study for the National Institutes of Health about effects on patients of transfusions with blood products contaminated with AIDS and other viruses.
