Exeter Hospital said it will correct serious problems discovered after a hepatitis C outbreak last spring in time to stop a cutoff of its Medicare funding. The hospital has been trying to correct deficiencies identified in July by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The agency’s inspection was triggered by the case of David Kwiatkowski, a former cardiac catheterization lab worker who is accused of stealing drugs from the hospital and replacing them with tainted syringes that were later used on patients. Thirty-two people have been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C he carries. (AP)
