Hepatitis C outbreak tied to man who worked in Michigan hospitals

DETROIT -- A man accused of deliberately infecting patients with Hepatitis C worked at several Michigan hospitals.

On Tuesday, the State Department of Community Health confirmed that David Kwiatkowski was employed by at least six facilities between 2003 and 2007.

Michigan health officials said they are working to ease patients' minds.

"We're taking it very seriously.  We're participating fully with the health department, and we really want to put safety first for our entire community," said Dr. Suzanne White of the Detroit Medical Center.

Police believe Kwiatkowski gave 30 people in New Hampshire Hepatitis C by using infected syringes.

The health department said there is no evidence that he had the disease when he worked in Michigan.
