AIDS testing

It's your call

May 23, 1991

State officials say a dentist who treated inmates at the Maryland Penitentiary recently died of AIDS. The dentist's death raises again the question of whether health-care workers should be tested for the AIDS virus.

Do you think health-care workers should be tested for the AIDS virus? Do you think patients should be informed if a health-care worker tests positively? Should employers be held responsible if health workers working in their employ infect patients?

Register your opinion with SUNDIAL. The call is local and must be made from a tone phone. The SUNDIAL number is 783-1800 or, in Anne Arundel County, 268-7736. When you reach SUNDIAL enter category 4600 and wait for instructions from the announcer. Call with your opinion between 10 a.m. and midnight. The results will be published in this section tomorrow.
