New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 7, 2007, New Braunfels, Texas Page 10A-Herald-Zeitung - Sunday, January 7, 2007 Officials concerned about TB LUBBOCK (AP) - Concerned that about 2,800 people might have been exposed to tuberculosis at a West Texas hospital, state health officials are mailing warnings encouraging testing for the disease. The possible exposure at Lubbock's University Medical Center occurred between September and November of last year, but the hospital was not alerted until last month. Privacy laws don't allow the hospital to name who caused the possible exposure to TB. Hospital employees are tested for TB each year, hospital spokesman Greg Bruce. The Texas Department of State Health Services said only people who receive the letter should be tested. The agency stressed this was not an outbreak. "There's no immediate danger," Bruce told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal for Thursday editions. TB is caused by bacteria that can attack the kidney, spine and brain, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: The disease can be fatal if left untreated. Letters are standard procedure whenever TB is reported, state health services spokesman Barry Wilson said. He noted that officials were liberal in compiling the list of people who might have been exposed.

Waldrip said those who are arrested for abuse of prescription drugs might face misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on the type and amount of the drug. "Fentanyl would be a felony," he said. Comal County Sheriff's Capt. Dennis Koepp said dial prescription drug arrests are not a significant or increasing part of the county's drug problem. However, Rust said that prescription drug abuse makes up about 25 percent of the city's drug cases. "We've always had our share but they seem to be getting more popular with the younger people," he said. "I don't know if they don't think of it as a hard drug or if prescriptions are just easier to get from their parents' medicine cabinets." Rust said that some of the symptoms of prescription drug abuse are different than those of illicit drug abuse. "There won't be a smell because they usually are swallowing a pill," he said.
