National statistics show it is relatively rare for a hospital to be the root of a hepatitis C outbreak.
In the past eight years, 22 cases of healthcare-related hepatitis C were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to the CDC’s report detailing cases from 2008-2014. Of those, only 2 of them occurred in a hospital setting — the rest happened at places like outpatient facilities and hemodialysis settings.
