Exeter Hospital CEO challenges state's hepatitis C report
"The quality of healthcare in New Hampshire is among the best in the country and the criminal actions of one individual and are not reflective of the system as a whole," Alroy-Preis said. "They do, however, demonstrate that the system is not perfect and requires both healthcare and public health to remain vigilant for ways to improve patient care."
It also recommends closer monitoring of employees with access to powerful narcotics and more detailed accounting of controlled substances before and after medical procedures.
Callahan said the hospital has already implemented new policies to secure medication in his letter to Montero, which noted several parts of the report the hospital felt were misleading or wrong.
"Many of the statements and conclusions contained in the report are demonstrably false and in conflict with publicly available information and the mountains of data we provided to your team," Callahan wrote in the letter, which was released by the hospital.
DHPS has scheduled a community meeting to share the report and take questions from the public Monday at 6 p.m. at Exeter High School.
