What Is Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C is a deadly virus that infects the liver and usually leaves its victims with the liver disease cirrhosis. Soon after cirrhosis infects the liver, patients are generally diagnosed with wither liver disease or liver cancer. While hepatitis C can be treated, the symptoms generally do not show until a great deal of time after the victim has contracted the disease, thus making the patient much more difficult to successfully treat.

How Is Hepatitis C Transmitted?

Hepatitis C can be transmitted sexually, prenatally or orally. The most common form of transmitting the disease is being exposed to blood that is already infected with the hepatitis C virus. It is reported that Kwiatkowski stole syringes that were filled with an addictive pain killer, then after using the needle he would refill the syringes with water or saline. From the time Kwiatkowski was fired at UPMC in Pittsburgh until his last job at Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire, he had been fired one other time and left numerous other jobs when co-workers became suspicious of what they reported as drug-induced behavior.
