Hospital to face court over legionella cases

An Essex hospital is to be prosecuted for allegedly failing to protect the public from the cause of Legionnaire's disease.

Taken from the BBC website:

"The disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by the legionella bacteria.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is prosecuting Basildon Hospital under the Health and Safety at Work Act. The hospital said it had not had any cases of Legionnaire's Disease since 2011.

Official figures show there have been 13 cases of patients catching the legionella bacteria since 2002. Last August, a patient died of Legionnaire's.

The single charge from the HSE relates to cases of legionella at the hospital between February 2004 and December 2010."
