Griffin Lcggctt Healey Roth Uttle Rock Forest Hills Memorial Park Little Rock Griffin Legctt/Rest Hills FUNERAL HOME AND MEMORIAL PARK/ NORTH LITI'L[ ROCK FUNERAL HOME Hot Springs Kimberly Berga dies from AIDS Fort Pierce, FL (CNS) -- Kimberly Bergalis, the young woman who contracted AIDS from her dentist and made it her mission to push for laws requiring health workers to be tested for AIDS, died Dec. 8 at age 23. Hers was the first confirmed case of an AIDS-infected doctor infecting a patient, according to the Centers for Disease C~nwol. The visibly ailing woman drew national media attention this fall : when she testified before Congress in favor of mandatory testing of health care workers and patients before invasive medical proce- dupes are performed. But the "Bergalis Bill," opposed by AIDS activists, the American Medical Association and the American Dental Association, never .............. ~ made it out of congressional committee. Medical specialists maintain that doctor-patient infections are ...... extremely unlikely if standard preventive steps are taken, despite .... reports by the Centers for Disease Control that at least 40 of the .... nation's 6,436 infected health care workers contracted the virus ~" from patients' blood. Kimberly Bergalis Bergalis was infected by her dentist, Dr. David Acer, who died of AIDS in 1990. Four other Acer patients have been diagnosed with the same strain of AIDS. In a scathing letter to Florida health officials in April, Bergalis wrote: "Who do I blame? Do I blame myselt?. I sure don't. I never used IV drugs, never slept with anyone and never had a blood transfusion." Instead, she said she blamed Acer and "anyone that knew Dr. Acer was infected and had full-blown AIDS and stood by not doing a damn thing about it." The Bergalis family became increasingly vocal as the young woman became ticker. '"Someone who has AIDS and continues to practice (medicine) is nothing better than a murderer," her father was quoted as saying. "they might as well take a gun and shoot somebody in the head." Reutors/CNS Cardinal Franciszek (L) of Krakow, Poland, and Cardinal Edward I. Cassidy, the Vatican's top ecumenical officer, recently laid the cornerstone for the new Carmelite convent at Auschwitz. The new building will replace the controversial convent located beside the Nazi death camp wall, which Jew- ish groups have criticized as being too close to the site where some 4,000,000 people, mostly Jews, were exterminated. The cornerstone, brought from Rome, was blessed by Pope John Paul II. ou're assured when you're insured. Risk Managers - Insurance 1501 N.
