More Hepatitis C Infection Victims Identified

by Monty Yolles on December 28, 2012

Four more Maryland patients have been diagnosed with a strain of hepatitis C bearing a striking resemblance to the strain that infects David Kwiatkowski, a former traveling hospital worker. The worker is accused of spreading Hepatitis C by using narcotic-filled syringes on himself and concealing his theft by refilling the syringes with saline, which were then used on unsuspecting patients by workers as though the syringes were unused.

The four newly diagnosed patients were treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital from July 10, 2009 to Jan. 9, 2010.

Kwiatkowski was employed by Medical Solutions, a staffing agency that provides contract medical technicians.  Medical Solutions sent Kwiatkowski to Johns Hopkins as a temporary worker.  Johns Hopkins say they require diligent vetting of technicians, and received no warning about Kwiatkowski.

Kwiatkowski gained unfettered access to controlled narcotics in multiple locations.  We hope one of the outcomes of this incident will be higher security in hospitals to prevent this from happening again.
