A teenage cancer patient forced to stop chemo early because of rare hospital infection contracted at Glasgow's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, according to an article on The Herald website.
Three children had contracted infections while being treated for cancer at the hospital.
The teen has untreatable lesions after becoming infected with a rare bacterium – Mycobacterium chelonae – from the hospital water supply.
An NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde spokesman said: "The risk of infection can never be completely eliminated and some people have a higher chance of acquiring an infection than others. Our responsibility when caring for our patients is to assess that risk and to put in place appropriate measures to stop infection or prevent its spread."See the latest posts on our homepage
