Department of Keeping Fingers Crossed

Seen in a story discussing an oversight at a hospital in New York state (emphasis mine):

"The hospital said it did not have records that medical instruments used for upper endoscopies or colonoscopies were properly disinfected for procedures performed from April 28 to May 10 . . .

The procedures involve inserting a flexible tube through the patient's mouth or rectum to check the upper or lower digestive system for abnormalities."

I really hope they have two different tubes...
