Update on Legionella in Hospital Guernsey Hospital Water Supply

According to Channel Online TV, the Princess Elizabeth Hospital in Guernsey has not completely decontaminated its water supply.  Specifically, the clinical block remains “a concern.” As mentioned in the previous related post, the hospital has already undergone chlorination of the hospital’s pipes in January. However, as it did not flush out all the bacteria, they will now heat treat the hot water pipes in the clinical block.

There are still no reports of illness, and the hospital is trying to minimize inconvenience to staff and patients while going through this process. The Health and Social Services Department will conduct more tests next week after the heat treatment, Channel Online TV reports.
