Another Patient Tests Positive for Hep C
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services says another Exeter Hospital patient has tested positive for the original strain of hepatitis C. This brings the total count to 21—20 patients and 1 hospital employee.
The current testing pool includes anyone associated with the hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab or recovery room between October 1, 2010 and May 25, 2012.
New Hampshire Director of Public Health, José Montero, says that the DHHS continues to work in close collaboration with Exeter Hospital while the CDC independently checks testing results.
Over 1,000 samples have been tested so far. The cause of the outbreak is still being investigated.
