If true, a human horror story.

This is only alleged, not proven. But if true, it shows stupidity and careless disregard for the lives of others. If true, they should give this guy a lethal injection and end his suffering.

The guy is sick with hepatitis C.

This is what is alleged:

He is a medical technician working at different hospitals. So he steals syringes filled with Fentanyl, an anti-pain medicine for cancer, and injects himself with the drug. Which means the syringes are now possibly tainted with hepatitis C.

To cover the theft, he then filled the syringes with saline and replaced them for hospital use on patients.

He is stealing an anti-pain medication for himself, and substituting salt water to be given to cancer patients for their pain?

And risking the spread of his infectious disease to these same patients as well?


What is true:
More than 30 patients at a New Hampshire hospital are now infected with hepatitis C.

Thousands of other patients are being tested in Arizona, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and other states, because he has carried the disease since at least June 2010, and he held hospital jobs from Arizona to New England.

Ex-medical technician indicted in hepatitis C outbreak


Federal grand jury charges David M. Kwiatkowski, who is accused of stealing hospital syringes, using them on himself and placing them out for use on patients.

WASHINGTON A nomadic medical technician who held hospital jobs from Arizona to New England has been indicted in connection with a hepatitis C outbreak that infected more than 30 patients at a New Hampshire hospital and exposed thousands of others in Pennsylvania, Maryland and other states.

David M. Kwiatkowski, a 33-year-old former radiology technician, was charged Wednesday by a federal grand jury with seven counts of tampering with a consumer product and seven counts of obtaining controlled substances by fraud, the Justice Department said Thursday. Infected with the life-threatening virus, he is accused of stealing hospital syringes, using them on himself and placing them out for use on hospital patients.

Kwiatkowski has carried the disease since at least June 2010. When he was found in a Holiday Inn room in Boxborough, Mass., this summer, officials say, officers discovered six bottles of medication and loose pills.

Kwiatkowski was drunk, disheveled and confused, and had left a suicide note to a friend, according to police reports. "Please call [her] and let her know I passed away," he is quoted as saying in the note. "Tell her I couldn't handle this stress anymore."

He was taken to a hospital in Worcester, Mass., and was arraigned in his bed next to FBI agents, lawyers and a federal judge from Boston. His defense attorney, James G. Reardon Jr., said, "He was quite sick."

Kwiatkowski faces up to 98 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.

A hospital in Pittsburgh has sent letters to 2,000 patients warning that Kwiatkowski might have infected them, and four hospitals in Maryland are testing 1,700 patients.

More than 30 tested positive for hepatitis C at Exeter Hospital in Exeter, N.H. "This has been a difficult time for our patients and the community," the 100-bed hospital said on its website.

Marcie DiFede, an FBI special agent in Portsmouth, N.H., said in a court affidavit that Kwiatkowski was raised in Michigan and in 2007 began traveling the country as a contract lab technician in six states, including Arizona, Kansas and Georgia. Some stints lasted just 13 weeks.

DiFede said Kwiatkowski "often told stories about himself," claiming he played college baseball in Michigan, that his fiancee died "under tragic circumstances" and that he was fighting cancer.

At Exeter Hospital, co-workers said he was "sweating" with "bloodshot eyes" and appeared to be "on something," DiFede said. Or that he came to work with a "red face, red eyes and white foam around his mouth." His arms carried "fresh track marks, " DiFede said.

She said Kwiatkowski injected himself with syringes filled with Fentanyl, an anti-pain medicine for cancer, which tainted the needles with hepatitis C. He then filled the syringes with saline for hospital use, she said.

DiFede said Kwiatkowski had denied tampering with drugs but also told authorities, "I'm more concerned about myself, my own well-being. That's all I'm really concerned about."

I would have thought it would be pretty obvious if the seal on the syringe is broken or tempered with...anywho don't know what to say if this is true, it's so sad in the way what it tells about human nature. Good news everyone!

Whilst I can sympathise with his personal plight, given that he would be in no doubt what he was doing would harm others, it is unforgiveable!

Similar thing happened with an anesthetist in Spain in the 90s. He had Hepatitis C and would inject himself with morphine prior to using the same syringe on patients. He did it for 10 years and 275 patients were infected, 4 dying because of it. Him being a doctor, it's even more appalling. During the trial, he would said he didn't consider Hepatitis C to be a disease.

This story reminds me of a similar one that broke here where I live, about 40 or more years ago concerning some of our major local hospitals.
It got out that nurses, and other hospital workers, as well as doctors, were stealing narcotic medication from the vaults and replacing them with placebos.
Many were stealing them for their personal use while others to sell to eager buyers on the outside.

When the roof finally did blow off this affair and the media was wildly swarming about while the citizenry was stewing, a strange thing happened:
Within days the media coverage stopped and things were ebbing back to normal. Then it just all went away.
I suppose I was in the majority of those who were rife with outrage that such a thing would happen.
All I could think about was those hospital patients who were in pain and getting nothing stronger than aspirins.

How long this went on before the discovery and the Axe fell on this thing, is any body's guess. But as I recall, after the authorities did some house cleaning no heads rolled nor any arrests were made from this whole sordid mess.

I suspect the timely hush of news that was held in check might have something to do with The AMA putting a foot up the health care locale's ass, and at the same time using the other foot to block any more harm to their reputation. Edited on Dec 02, 2012, 09:56am

Well, I suppose that isn't quite so bad as the person referred to in the OP, G.

At least they weren't actively & knowingly randomly infecting other innocent people.
