Class-Action Lawsuit to be Filed Against NH’s Exeter Hospital

A lawyer who plans to file a class-action lawsuit against Exeter Hospital in connection with the hepatitis C outbreak said his client list has grown to 169 people, including 11 former Exeter patients who have tested positive for the virus, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader. Attorney Peter McGrath said although most of his clients tested negative for the hepatitis C virus (HCV), they still had to endure a “gutwrenching period of time fearing they were exposed to the illness.” He hopes to present his request for class-action status at a hearing in November. McGrath filed a complaint in Rockingham County Superior Court against the hospital in June and has since added the Nebraska-based Triage Staffing, a health care company that hired and placed David Kwiatkowski, the suspect in the outbreak, at Exeter.
