The New Hampshire Senate has blocked an attempt to eliminate a registration system created to prevent widespread hepatitis C outbreak

The New Hampshire Senate has blocked an attempt to eliminate a registration system created to prevent widespread hepatitis C outbreak years ago. New Hampshire created the Board of Registration for Medical Technicians in response to David Kwiatkowski, who infected dozens of people and is serving 39 years in prison for replacing painkillers with saline-filled syringes tainted with his blood. The House recently passed a bill that would eliminate the board. But the Senate on Thursday killed it, citing the importance of patient safety.
