An attorney for hundreds of former patients of the HealthPlus Surgery Center of Saddle Brook, N.J., said two clients contracted hepatitis because of an unsanitary facility, according to an article on the PIX11 website.

Its inspectors also discovered that the lack of sanitation put patients who'd been treated at the HealthPlus location during 2018 at risk for contracting HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
The fact that at least one former patient has contracted hepatitis B has left other former patients concerned, the article said.
