NH report criticizes Exeter Hospital in hep C outbreak

Valley News / Associated Press, June 25, 2013

Concord — Exeter Hospital ignored employee concerns about a medical technician accused of infecting patients with hepatitis C, had an unreliable system for documenting their complaints and told at least one not to file a report, according to a public health department report released Friday. The Division of Public Health Services report follows a yearlong investigation into the outbreak, which started in May 2012. While the hospital's past failures in safeguarding controlled drugs have come to light previously, the report includes new details of how it handled co-worker complaints about David Kwiatkowski, along with some general information about the people he is accused of infecting.
