Hepatitis C Scare in Colorado, Texas and New York

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Officials in New York and Texas are trying to determine if a surgical technician at the center of a  hepatitis C scare in Colorado infected anyone in those states.

Former surgical technician, Kristen Diane Parker, 26, faces federal criminal charges for her allegedly allegedly swapping Fentanyl syringes with dirty, saline-filled syringes to feed her addiction to the painkiller.  Parker was employed at Rose Medical Center in Denver from Oct. 21 to April 13 and at Colorado Springs’ Audubon Surgery Center from May 4 until June 29.

In Colorado, 6,000 patients have been alerted that they may have been exposed to hepatitis C because of her actions.  What’s more, officials say that 10 cases of the illness may be linked to Parker.

Now the Associated  Press is reporting that Parker worked at hospitals in New York and Texas, prompting officials in those states to launch their own investigation.  In New York, health officials are advising 2,800 patients who had surgery at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco between Oct. 8, 2007, and Feb. 28, 2008 to get tested for hepatitis C.   It isn’t known if Parker had hepatitis C while she was employed there, and so far no cases of the disease have been reported.

In Texas, Parker worked at Christus St. John Hospital outside Houston between May 2005 and October 2006, the Associated Press said.  An investigation began there Wednesday, but officials say that it its too early to determine if any patients are at risk.

Parker is currently being held in jail in Colorado without bond.  A federal magistrate refused bond, saying Parker posed a danger to the community.
