A medical technician accused of infecting patients with Hepatitis C in as many as eight states worked here in Maryland.
He worked at four Maryland hospitals between 2008 and 2010 including Johns Hopkins, Maryland General, Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Southern Maryland Hospital.
David Kwiatkowski is accused of infecting patients with Hepatitis C in as many as eight states.
Earlier in the week he appeared before a judge in New Hampshire, he's being held without bond.
Federal authorities say while working at a hospital in New Hampshire, he infected at least 30 patients.
They say he stole syringes filled with a pain killer, used them to get high, and then put the dirty needles back.
Here in Maryland, federal prosecutors expect to bring more charges against him.
As a precaution, Southern Maryland Hospital is sending letters to former patients who could have come into contact with Kwiatkowski who worked in the cardiac unit.
Kwiatkowski is in the custody of U.S. marshals and will return to court next month.
He denies being a drug user and says he's innocent.
