Three New Kansas Patients Linked to Exeter Hospital Hepatitis C Outbreak

As the hepatitis C testing continues in hospitals where David Kwiatkowski was employed, three new positive test results have been made public. The new positive tests come from Kansas where Kwiatkowski was employed at the Hays Medical Center’s cardiac catheterization lab from May 24 to Sept. 22, 2010.
In New Hampshire, another 3,300 patients are being tested for the hepatitis C virus. According to media reports, “The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said Tuesday that 375 former Hays Medical patients had submitted blood for testing as of Aug. 27. Of that number, 353 were negative for hepatitis C. Tests on the others are pending. Another 58 patients could not be tested because they are already deceased.”
