Tech in NH hepatitis C case worked in Mich., Md.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Health officials say a man accused of causing a hepatitis C outbreak in New Hampshire previously worked in Maryland and Michigan.

A spokesman for The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore says David Kwiatkowski worked in the cardiac catheterization lab there from July 2009 to January 2010 and in least three other Maryland hospitals as well.

The Michigan Department of Community Health says Kwiatkowski also worked in that state, and officials are working to determine where.

Kwiatkowski, a traveling lab technician, was charged Thursday with federal drug crimes. He’s accused of stealing anesthetic drugs from Exeter Hospital, injecting himself and contaminating syringes that were later used on patients, 30 of whom were later diagnosed with hepatitis C.
