Man sues Washington hospital after nurse allegedly infects him with hep C

The preliminary finding states that Weberg "intentionally contaminated medicine or another substance with her own blood; she then administered the medicine or other substance intravenously; Cora Weberg knew or reasonably should have known that her blood was likely to contain one or more blood-borne pathogens; and Cora Weberg's blood did, in fact, contain and transmit Hepatitis C virus". She also said she informed the health department ahead of time that she was going on the trip.

Puyallup police also said last Friday the trip was previously planned. Police say the case is ongoing. She can not work as a registered nurse in Washington until the charges are resolved.

Cora Weberg (RN.60712470) has been immediately suspended by the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission (NCQAC) due to alleged diversion of controlled substances.

Liver inflammation potentially caused by a virus or other factors is called hepatitis, and there are three types of viruses, namely A, B, and C, which cause the disease. "This is false", said Weberg.

The statement added that a complete genetic sequence testing of the blood samples from the patients revealed that the hepatitis C in their blood has the same source.

"Are these investigators, was the law enforcement, department of health, as Pierce County health department: were they incompetent or dishonest?" exclaimed Bryan Hersman, Weberg's attorney.

Weberg claims she only took drugs that had been discarded and never used needles that had been once used by herself or patients.

Her attorneys also say that's impossible because Weberg was a regular blood donor.

American magazine Forbes on Tuesday, may 8, published a ranking of the most influential people in the world. President Donald Trump, who was at No.2 past year , fell to the third position, behind Putin.

"I want the public to ask a question". "I think those are the two options".

At this point in the story, there has been no word released about Weberg's possible motive. Despite that, Weberg's legal team claims her passport, driver's license, credit cards, and phone remain confiscated. Ms. Weberg's lawyer said she was let go because there was not enough evidence against her, according to KOMO.

The lawsuit was filed on Friday following the arrest of the 31-year-old nurse Cora Weberg, who was suspected of stealing narcotics and exposing thousands of patients to the virus. She ultimately chose not to, according to Hershman. His attorneys claim the hospital had received patient complaints about the nurse previous year but did not act on them.

Good Samaritan Hospital said it had sent 2,600 letter to patients who may have been exposed to Hepatitis C over an eight-month period. MultiCare Health System encouraged people who visited the emergency room between August 2017 and March 2018 to be tested.

Hepatitis C may have some telltale signs and symptoms such as jaundice, nausea, and fatigue, but many people don't display any symptoms and are unaware of the infection.

Although most people do not experience symptoms, they can include vomiting, stomach aches or yellow skin or eyes, the hospital said.

"We have taken extensive measures to identify anyone who may have been at risk for exposure", Good Samaritan President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Bredeson said in a hospital statement released on April 30.
