He said the hospital might not have administered the affected drugs to patients. The topical numbing gel was used only for children in the hospital's emergency department, and the inhalants were used for patients with respiratory issues.
"There's such a low volume at Teays Valley, a couple if any doses have been given out," he said.

On Oct. 4, the FDA advised hospitals and clinics around the country to contact patients who had been exposed to steroid shots manufactured by NECC. The shots were used in eye and heart surgeries.
NECC issued a voluntary recall of all its products on Oct. 6.
The company said in a news release that the move was taken out of an abundance of caution because of the risk of contamination but said there was no indication any other products have been contaminated, the Associated Press reported at the time.
The tainted shots have led to 344 fungal meningitis cases in 18 states and 25 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
No cases and no deaths have been reported in West Virginia, though four surrounding states have been affected. Pennsylvania has reported one case, Virginia has reported 43 including two deaths, Ohio has had 13 cases and Maryland has reported 19 cases and one death.
Fungal meningitis is not contagious. Patients contract the disease when a fungus spreads through the bloodstream and enters the central nervous system. Symptoms include headache, fever, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light.
