Attorney of nurse in Puyallup Hepatitis C case responds

Cora Weberg, the emergency room nurse suspected of stealing narcotics and spreading hepatitis C to patients admitted to the hospital's emergency department, was arrested last week as she attempted to cross the border to Canada.

Cora Weberg is reportedly the only nurse at the Good Samaritan Hospital who treated both of the patients who tested positive for hepatitis C. Her license is now suspended.

The former MultiCare nurse alleged to have stolen drugs from Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup for the first time telling her side of the story.

The former nurse said during a news conference Tuesday that she has never "intentionally or unintentionally" used a needle on a patient that she had previously used on herself - saying that "of all the allegations that have been made against me, this is the most bad and it is the allegation that I deny the most".

State officials said that two of the patients whom Weberg administered with pain medications later tested positive for hepatitis C.

"As of this very moment I do not believe that I'm a contagious carrier of hepatitis-c", Weberg told reporters during a news conference in Fircrest on Tuesday.

Her attorneys also say that's impossible because Weberg was a regular blood donor.

MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital sent a notice last month to 2,600 patients who were given intravenous narcotics, antihistamines or sedatives in the emergency room from August 4 to March 23, warning them that two patients had been exposed to hepatitis C, most likely in the ER. The county prosecutor has yet to charge her with a crime but still could depending on what investigators discover.

Weberg, 31, said she was never been advised she might have Hepatitis C until the after the investigation started.

"On the one hand, my heart goes out to these infected people", he told the Tribune.

"They've been investigating it for months, we simply called the Red Cross", said Hersman. However, health investigators were unable to conclusively find a genetic link between Weberg and the patients.

"This is this woman's life", he added.

"We are not looking into the criminal allegations at this point".

According to MultiCare, hepatitis C affects the liver when the virus enters a person's system, usually through exposure to an infected person's blood. In fact, most hepatitis C patients got the virus by sharing needles.

The two patients who tested positive for Hepatitis C received painkiller injections last December.

The hospital stresses that 70 percent of people with Hepatitis C - a liver infection - do not show symptoms, but leaving it untreated can result in serious long-term health problems.

A Washington emergency room nurse is accused of infecting at least two patients with Hepatitis C by using some of their narcotics for herself and injecting them using the same needle.

The link to Weberg was less clear, health department leaders found. "That didn't happen", said Weberg.

Weberg's attorneys also claim investigators ignored her written answers to questions posed by health officials and instead claimed she in fact did have the virus and potentially exposed patents who had visited the Good Samaritan ER for more than 6 months.
