Hepatitis at Atlantic City hospital probed

Philadelphia Inquirer, April 27, 2009
New Jersey health officials are trying to unravel how 15 dialysis patients at an Atlantic City hospital have contracted hepatitis C since 2005. Hospital administrators at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center City Campus contacted the state after discovering five new hepatitis C cases during federally required annual hepatitis C testing of all dialysis patients. The testing, in late March and early April, showed the five patients had become positive for the disease since starting dialysis treatment at the hospital.
