Bright & Early: An Apple A Day Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Several members of Congress are a little less than pleased with VA officials after yesterday’s testimony in which officials admitted that their hospitals still aren’t following proper procedures for cleaning medical equipment. You may remember that the problems were first uncovered Alvin C. York Medical Center in Murfreesboro in December 2008 and other facilities in January 2009. Six months and dozens of cases of Hepatitis and HIV later, many of the facilities can’t demonstrate that they’ve even trained their staff on how to clean the equipment correctly.

A year ago on Nashvillest: We wondered if shelling out $3 million in tax incentives for the Hannah Montana movie was a good idea, read a silly poem by our favorite weatherman Tim Ross, laughed at a dog driving around in a picture frame, and learned that our tap water probably won’t kill us.
