How could it cause joint pain?? In theory, wouldn't hydraulic fluid keep you lubed up? :D

Haha, I work at the other big Hospital system here in Raleigh. I remember when that happened. Our sterile processing department had to do massive inventory and research to prove that we didn't run into the same problem. And we didn't thank god.
In theory, it should not cause any problems. The fluid was used to clean the surgical instruments and then they were sterilized in the autoclave, which will kill anything on it and remove all traces of the fluid. I still wouldn't want anyone operating on me with that stuff though.
