TB deaths at Las Vegas hospital's NICU spur health alert
Health officials urged tuberculosis testing for hundreds of babies, family members and staff who were at Summerlin Hospital Medical Center's neonatal intensive care unit in Las Vegas this past summer, saying they want to take extra precautions after the death of a mother and her twin babies and the infection of more than 26 people. Authorities with the Southern Nevada Health District said Tuesday that they're working to contact parents of about 140 babies who were at Summerlin's NICU between mid-May and mid-August, and have set up a temporary clinic to test them.
