It has been reported that months back, a technician of Exeter Hospital was found accused of tainting syringes that later were used on several patients admitted there. He was suffering from hepatitis C and therefore using the infected syringes, he might have infected dozens of people with the same disease.
Considering this, all those patients who were admitted in the main operating room and the intensive care unit between April 1, 2011 and May 25, 2012 have been asked to visit the testing clinics on August 18. Letters mentioning their respective sites along with their time slots have been dispatched to them.
The man reported as the main accuse for this Hepatitis C outbreak was a narcotics. And it becomes really shameful for the hospital to accept that they were unable to maintain sufficient supervision over him. This is for the first time that such a testing would be held by the New Hampshire Health Department clinic.
It will open on Friday. In total, 3000 patients have been sent letters out of which 500 are expected to visit the clinic on Friday at the Cooperative Middle School in Stratham. As said by Diana Heath to WMUR-TV, "I'm just getting the testing done to be on the safe side".
