Allina Health has notified dozens of patients at a St. Paul dermatology clinic that they might want to be tested for HIV or hepatitis because a nurse practitioner had been reusing syringes.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Allina spokesman David Kanihan says the risk of infection is extremely low - less than one percent. But, the tests were offered out of an abundance of caution.
