Boston Globe / Associated Press, December 11, 2012

Though Exeter Hospital has fixed problems discovered after a hepatitis C outbreak last spring, federal officials say the hospital initially failed to conduct an adequate investigation. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said last week it no longer plans to terminate the hospital's Medicare funding now that multiple issues raised by inspectors have been addressed. While details of the problems weren't released after the latest inspection in September, documents provided to The Associated Press on Monday show that officials weren't satisfied with the hospital's initial response to the outbreak, among other things.
