Settlement negotiations are in process with Triage staffing, the staffing agency responsible for placing David M. Kwiatkowski with New Hampshire’s Exeter Hospital according to Boston.com.

Kwiatkowski is accused of stealing drugs and infecting patients with hepatitis C.  Triage Staffing was sued for negligence shortly after Kwiatkowski’s arrest.

Dominic Paolini, a[n] attorney whose clients include a New Hampshire man diagnosed with hepatitis C and several other Exeter patients, sued Nebraska-based Triage Staffing for negligence shortly after David Kwiatkowski’s arrest in July. A federal magistrate last week recommended that the lawsuit be dismissed, but Paolini said re-filing it remains an option if settlement talks break down.
