According to media reports, eight residents of the LGAR Health and Rehabilitation Center in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Pittsburgh) have contracted Legionnaires’ disease.  The director of the Allegheny County Health Department said he did not know what caused growth of Legionella bacteria in the center’s water system.  Remediation efforts include using bottled water instead of tap water.  Updates will be provided when they become available.

In a similar case, Jules Zacher, Esquire is currently representing a woman who contracted Legionnaires’ disease during her stay in a Cleveland nursing home.
