Norton Healthcare and Jewish Hospital delayed surgeries recently after a water main break in Shelby Park, Ky., caused low water pressure at the downtown hospitals, according to an article on the Courier-Journal website.
Patients were given bottled water and used hand sanitizer after washing their hands.
