A traveling hospital technician accused of causing a hepatitis C outbreak in New Hampshire previously worked in Maryland and Michigan healthcare facilities, officials said Friday. A spokesman for The Johns Hopkins Hospital said David Kwiatkowski worked in the cardiac catheterization lab at the Baltimore hospital from July 2009 to January 2010. Spokesman Gary Stephenson said the hospital is contacting all patients who may have come in contact with Kwiatkowski to offer them free testing for hepatitis C, a blood-borne viral infection that can cause liver disease and chronic health issues.
