Attorney Bill Caroselli and Attorney Lynne Johnson of Kansas City file suit against UPMC over Hepatitis C

On September 3, 2012, Attorney William Caroselli and Attorney Lynne Johnson of Shamberg, Johnson & Bergman in Kansas City filed a lawsuit in Pittsburgh against UPMC Presbyterian, Maxim Staffing Solutions, Inc., and Medical Solutions, LLC, for medical negligence.

The suit alleges that the actions or lack of actions by UPMC, Maxim Staffing Solutions, Inc., and Medical Solutions, LLC, caused Linda Ficken to get Hepatitis C.  Ficken, tested positive for hepatitis C in July 2012, two years after she was a patient at Hays Medical Center, the Kansas hospital where David Kwiatkowski worked. Kwiatkwosi was arrested in New Hampshire in July of 2012 after more than 30 people contracted the same strain of Hepatitis C at a NH hospital.

Kwiatkowski worked at UPMC Presby in 2008 for a couple months when he was caught with Fentanyl in his system and empty syringes in his pockets and his locker.  No government agencies or authorities were notified of the illegal drug abuse or actions of Kwiatkowski. 

Kwiatkowski went on to work at several hospitals after this incident at UPMC.
