McLean Hospital

USDA documents for inspections performed at McLean Hospital on 2/2/00 list many problems in the area of Veterinary Care and IACUCs relative to primates. Drugs that had expired as much as 2 years and 10 months before the inspection were still in use. Primates (#261-85 and #258-90) have "excessive generalized hair loss" and the records for these primates do not indicate that this has even been noticed. Primate #91-94 is "limping and holding left leg up." Again, this health issue is not even mentioned in the records for this primate. There are violations regarding the IACUC which refer to a project which deprives primates of food.

By December 5, 2000 other expired drugs have piled up at McLean Hospital, and the condition of primates #261-85 and #258-90 have still not been noticed. And primate 91-94 now is " . . . still holding leg up and observations of foot at time of this inspection showed curled up appearance (disuse atrophy?)." Another primate, #347 also has unidentified health care issues.
