Flint hospital ordered to reduce Legionnaires' risks

June 21, 2019

Michigan officials are ordering a Flint hospital to take steps to reduce the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria and Legionnaires' disease at the facility, according to an article on the WWJ Newsradio website.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory ordered McLaren Flint Hospital to "immediately correct conditions."

A hospital spokesperson said McLaren believes the order "is unfounded and represents the state's continuous efforts to shift blame for their bad decisions made five years ago onto our hospital."

The order requires McLaren Flint Hospital to immediately comply with water restrictions, patient notification, data requests, public health investigations and official recommendations from the department.
