Chemical scare briefly closes Egleston ER
A substance brought into the emergency room at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston Saturday night temporarily closed that area of the hospital, and sickened four workers. The DeKalb County Fire Department's HAZMAT team found the substance to be a small bag of pellets typically used in pool maintenance. It was apparently brought into the hospital with a patient and his mother, both of whom were also sickened.
