From Fierce Healthcare:
New Hampshire health officials are investigating whether a hepatitis C outbreak that could involve hundreds of individuals at Exeter Hospital stemmed from a hospital employee abusing narcotics at the facility, The Union Leader reported.
As of Saturday, 14 people have tested positive for the same strain that has been linked to the hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab, including one Exeter employee. But after almost three weeks of investigation, the source of the outbreak remains unknown, noted Foster’s Daily Democrat.
