What about the AAPM, HPS as well as other medical facilities, such as 
Cleveland Clinic, etc.?

I still am of the opinion that there was no need for this publicity, 
no need to put the family at discomfort with the thought that there 
"might" have been a dangerous exposure to the infant, and that this 
could have been handled quite differently.

To expend large sums of funds, and w waste of required resources 
every time there is a perception that there might have been a problem 
has to simply change. We can not continue to operate our government, 
businesses and risk management to placate the uneducated in this
