Hampstead Woman Sues Exeter Hospital Over Hepatitis C

HAMPSTEAD – A lawsuit has been filed against Exeter Hospital and other agencies by a Hampstead woman, stemming from the hepatitis C scandal caused by David Kwiatkowski, a technician who had been working at the hospital.

Linda Sanborn filed the lawsuit in Rockingham Superior Court, claiming that her husband, Alden “Butch” Sanborn, contracted hepatitis C while being treated at Exeter Hospital’s Cardiac Catherization Lab in January 2012. She alleges that hepatitis C was then transmitted to her from her husband during intimate relations that occurred before her husband had been diagnosed with hepatitis C. The suit notes that once her husband’s condition had been diagnosed, appropriate precautions were taken by the couple.
Sanborn has sued Exeter Hospital, American Healthcare Services Association, Maxim Healthcare, American Registry of Radiology Technicians and Triage Staffing, Inc. She is seeking compensation for medical bills past, present and future relating to hepatitis C, lost wages and earning capacity, and suffering and significant loss of quality of life. The suit claims the hospital and the other agencies were negligent.
Sanborn’s husband was diagnosed as infected with hepatitis C in March 2012 after being admitted to Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
Kwiatowski, 34, pleaded guilty to 14 charges relating to the hepatitis C outbreak that infected multiple Exeter Hospital patients. Kwiatowski has admitted to tampering with syringes that were then re-used on Exeter Hospital patients.
Sanborn is represented by Attorney Paul Kleinman of Bouchard, Kleinman, and Wright, Manchester.
