Lawsuit: Mold at Tampa hospital killed three children
St. Petersburg Times, February 4, 2009
In spring 2007, three young cancer patients died within a month of one another after stays at Tampa, FL-based St. Joseph's Hospital.
But cancer didn't kill them, according to a lawsuit that alleges the children were exposed to a dangerous fungus released during a hospital construction project. Their immune systems already weakened by disease, the children succumbed to mold-related infections, the suit alleges.
