Mayo worker put patients at risk for hepatitis



In August, former radiology technician Steven Beumel, 47, was fired after admitting he had used painkillers prescribed for patients. He was arrested last month on a minor felony related to stealing drugs. But law-enforcement officials say he could face more charges as the investigation continues.

Beumel worked at the Mayo from Oct. 11, 2004, through Aug. 21, 2010. He worked in Interventional Radiology at St. Luke's Hospital from 2004 to April 11, 2008, when Mayo Clinic owned St. Luke's Hospital.

"We want to ensure that every patient who might be at risk is tested," said Dr. William C. Rupp, chief executive officer of Mayo Clinic in Florida.
