Exeter Hospital says it has nothing to hide in hepatitis C probe
Exeter Hospital officials insist they're not trying to hide anything, arguing that New Hampshire is illegally seeking “unfettered” access to patient medical records as an investigation into a hepatitis C scare continues.The news conference was called a day after the state Attorney General's Office filed a motion objecting to a protective order sought by the hospital to prevent the release of some patient medical information.The state wants to see more medical records as it investigates the outbreak that infected 32 former patients. Former hospital medical technician David Kwiatkowski, 33, is accused of infecting unsuspecting patients by using syringes filled with the painkiller Fentanyl on himself and then returning the contaminated needles for use on patients.
