Judge mulls medical records request in hepatitis C outbreak

Seacoastonline.com, October 19, 2012
A judge has taken under advisement the NH state Department of Health and Human Services' request to have broad access to Exeter Hospital's medical records system to aid its ongoing investigation into the hospital's hepatitis C outbreak. He indicated the state may have a limited right to the records with some minimization of its request. Thirty-two Exeter Hospital patients and the alleged infector, David Kwiatkowski, have all tested positive for hepatitis C, and another 28 patients had a past hepatitis C infection cleared by their immune system. Assistant Attorney General Jeanne Herrick indicated the state has concerns that more patients could be affected.
