August 13, 2013 by Janelle Vaesa
A U.S. hospital technician has infected dozens of people with hepatitis C by injecting himself with pain killers that patients were supposed to receive and then refilling the used and now contaminated syringes with saline solution.
David Kwiatkowski, the hospital technician at the Exeter hospital in New Hampshire, left the syringes tainted with his blood when he refilled them with the saline solution he used to replace the patients’ medicine.
Kwiatkowski has been in jail since his arrest in July 2012. In a plea agreement filed this past Monday, August 12, 2013, Kwitowski said he had been stealing these drugs for more than a decade and has “killed a lot of people,” reports the Guardian.
