Poudre Valley Hospital urges hepatitis C tests

FORT COLLINS — Poudre Valley Hospital is recommending hepatitis C testing for some patients after an employee at the hospital’s intensive care unit was suspected of stealing intravenous painkillers.

The hospital sent letters Saturday to 210 patients and some employees asking them to get shots if they were there from Sept. 2, 2011, and Aug. 28, 2012.

Officials would only identify the employee as a man, but they declined to say what position he held. No arrests have been made and the man was later fired.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, no cases of liver disease associated with the virus have been reported.
