Two people who stayed at the Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino were recently diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease, as was also a former guest of the Orleans Hotel and Casino, according to the Southern Nevada Health District. Earlier this year, 2 Legionnaires disease cases were reported among guests at the Orleans , prompting an investigation.  According to news reports, the Orleans’ water system was remediated and tested for the presence of the legionella bacteria, showing that there was no bacteria being detected at the time. Even so, after the additional recent new case was reported at the Orleans, environmental samples tested positive for Legionella. What is interesting about these cases is that even though the Orleans hotel and casino remediated its water system, there was an additional case. 

This office has litigated a   case against the ARIA Resort and Casino Hotel in Las Vegas. These victims acquired their disease from the potable water system, which appears to be the case at Caesars and the Orleans hotels. The transmission of the disease occurred in the ARIA case while guests were using the showers and faucets. The transmission occurred because the water coming from the shower heads and faucets was aerosolized and contained the legionella bacteria, which then entered the lungs of the victims.
