Car accidents are often confusing and frightening for those who experience them. It may feel like a great relief to make it through an accident with no pain or discomfort afterwards. While it is certainly possible to experience an accident without suffering injuries, this is less common than many people realize.
An investigation is underway at Mercy Hospital & Medical Center this week. Health and safety officials obtained information that two patients had fallen victim to Legionnaire's disease due to exposure that may have occurred at Mercy. Legionnaire's disease is the result of exposure to Legionella bacteria which only occurs when a building's water system is kept in substandard conditions.
