ManorCare Files Lawsuit Against Trinity Health

Posted: Updated:
ManorCare, the assisted living facility at the center of a hepatitis C outbreak in Minot, filed a lawsuit in federal court last week against Trinity Health.

The North Dakota Department of Health announced that its preliminary statistical analysis suggests that having hepatitis-C in this situation may be associated with the receipt of podiatry and blood draw services, which Trinity Health formerly provided to ManorCare's patients through contractual agreements.

Trinity Health says that its podiatry and blood draw services are not the source of the hepatitis-C outbreak.

“We know that the allegations are untrue. We know that when the truth is known in court we will be cleared,” says Trinity Health Vice President Randy Schwan. 

ManorCare released this statement:

“Out of respect for the ongoing legal process and the privacy of our patients, ManorCare will not comment in more detail. Our court filings throughout this matter will speak for themselves.”

The total number of cases in the largest unsolved outbreak of the disease in U.S. history stands at 46 people. The 46th person that has been diagnosed had no contact with ManorCare.
