Floors likely to reopen at Grady

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, March 2, 2009

Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital expects to reopen some areas today that were contaminated with Legionnaires' disease, while implementing $700,000 in measures to prevent another outbreak, hospital officials said. The officials said they could not definitively determine whether the four patients with the disease acquired it in the hospital. But widespread testing pinpointed high concentrations of Legionella bacteria in the patient areas of the 11th and 12th floors of the A tower, where those patients were staying, said hospital spokesman Matt Gove.
