Tampa hospital in mold case puts focus on cancer's toll
A day after an attorney claimed that mold at Tampa, FL-based St. Joseph’s Hospital killed three young cancer patients, the hospital released a statement that emphasized its safety measures and highlighted the deadliness of cancer. The hospital’s statement did not address an attorney’s contention that mold released during the renovation of the ground floor of its children’s oncology center led to fatal infections in three children who died within a month of one another in 2007. The attorney sued the hospital for negligence on behalf of the three children’s families.
