Five other states check for hepatitis

A medical technician accused of infecting at least 30 patients at a New Hampshire hospital with hepatitis C also worked in the past five years at hospitals in New York, Michigan, Arizona, Georgia, and Maryland, health officials in those states said Friday.

A day after federal prosecutors in Concord, N.H., charged David ­Matthew Kwiatkowski, state and federal investigators worked to ­determine whether the 32-year-old former Exeter Hospital employee, referred to by US Attorney John ­Kacavas as a “serial infector,” may have exposed other patients around the country to the virus, which can cause serious liver damage.
