Boston to tell 57 they may have been infected by paramedic

Boston health officials over the weekend began notifying 57 people who, they say, may have been exposed to blood-borne illnesses in the summer of 2011 when they were treated by a city ambulance paramedic now believed to have tampered with vials of painkillers and sedatives.

The telephone calls to potential victims will be followed up Monday with letters offering free medical tests to determine if they were exposed to infectious diseases.
