If this persons liver disease, which is causing the ("liver encephalopathy") is because they are infected by chronic hep c, then yes you are at risk for hep c for which there is NO vaccine to prevent infection (hep a & b yes, hep c no).

You should find out the status of this person to see if you need to be tested, if you cant get that info, you should get tested just to be on the safe side.

Have a great day
