Hepatitis C Possibly Contracted from New Hampshire Hospital

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 01, 2012
Four individuals who went to a hospital in Exeter, New Hampshire have contracted Hepatitis C, possibly from a cardiac catheterization procedure performed at a hospital lab.  This is the first Hepatitis C outburst in a New Hampshire hospital.  The lab has been closed and the 651 patients who have used the lab since last August are now being tested to make sure the liver infection has not spread.  It is important to be tested for this disease because the symptoms, which include loss of appetite, abdominal pain, fatigue, nausea and jaundice, do not always manifest themselves.  The disease inflames the liver and can lead to cirrhosis, cancer, transplant or death.  The investigation began May 14th and is ongoing. If you have recently contracted Hepatitis C and feel that you may be a victim of this act, contact Brooks & Crowley and we can provide with quality legal services based on years of experience.
