Miami Children's Hospital water supply under scrutiny

Miami Herald, June 12, 2009

A Florida agency will monitor Miami Children's Hospital in the wake of a county report blaming a common-yet-deadly bacteria for the deaths of two infants in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration will follow the hospital's compliance with recommendations by the Miami-Dade Health Department to improve its water supply, where 23 strains of the Pseudumonas aeruginosa were found by health investigators.
