NH not backing down on testing hospital staff
The state Department of Health and Human Services is not backing down from its recommendation to test additional Exeter Hospital employees for hepatitis C, despite the hospital's initial refusal to comply. On Friday, state health officials expressed hope the issue can be resolved amicably, but stressed they would do whatever is needed to fulfill their obligation to conduct a complete investigation. N.H. Associate Attorney General Anne Edwards said legal action is always an option, but she wouldn't say if it's currently being considered.
