According to the Aberdeen Evening Press, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has found issues in the legionella safety procedures of NHS Grampian Hospital in Scotland.

After a false alarm concerning a patient who was thought to have contracted Legionnaires’ disease from the hospital, the HSE investigated the hospital and discovered some legionella prevention failings in the water systems. It ordered the hospital to improve its policy.

NHS Grampian has since taken steps to upgrade its policy, Aberdeen Evening Press reports.
