Another lawsuit has been filed in a hepatitis C outbreak that has infected patients at Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire and in Kansas. Prosecutors said the outbreak was caused by medical technician Dave Kwiatkowski, who allegedly spread his hepatitis C to at least 32 patients in Exeter and two in Kansas by injecting himself with their medication to get high. A class-action lawsuit was recently filed by some of the Exeter victims against the hospital and a staffing company that employed Kwiatkowski. Kwiatkowski was a medical technician who was placed at hospitals all over the country. Several law firms representing one of the Kansas victims announced their intention to sue UPMC Presbyterian, a hospital in Pittsburgh where Kwiatkowski worked, and two staffing firms: Maxim Staffing Solutions and Medical Solutions.
