Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Today is my first day in the office for 2013. I intentionally took time off over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays to step back from work, enjoy my family and clear my head. Now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running! How about you?

Houston Medical Expands Testing in Hepatitis Case

Houston County Medical Center is asking more people to undergo testing because they came in contact with a technician accused of spreading Hepatitis C to patients in other states.

Jennifer Jones, spokewoman for the state's South Central Health District says the hospital has expanded its testing based on recommendations from the CDC and the Georgia Department of Public Health.

This summer, the hospital said they'd asked "less than 100" people who came in contact with technician David Kwiatkowski to get tested.

The Associated Press reports that Kwiatkowski worked at hospitals in at least six states.

In July, officials in New Hampshire accused him of infecting 30 people with the liver-destroying disease there. They say he stole syringes, used them to inject an anesthetic, and those syringes were later used on patients.

Houston Healthcare says Kwiatkowski was a contract worker there from October 2010 to March 2011.
