THIS WEEK IN 1994: HIV nurse '˜posed no risk to public'
Navy bosses reassured patients they were not at risk from a nurse infected with HIV who worked at a hospital in the Portsmouth area.
Petty officer Elaine Dugard, who was based at Haslar Hospital, Gosport, died of cerebral toxoplasmosis.
Haslar stressed the 27-year-old was restricted to working as a teacher in the medical school and had no contact with patients.
She was the third nurse in Portsmouth known to have contracted the virus.
