"Mold in air channels at hospital
Air filters were forgotten.
The carelessness puts patients lifes at risk.
Newly built Teahouse opened in January earlier this year. Special air filters, Hepa filters, were to be installed in ventilation to prevent air from reaching sensitive areas, including four operating rooms in the day surgery department as well as unit for hematological and oncological care, where blood and cancer patients are treated. During a routine check about a month ago where mold spores were discovered in the day surgery depart- ment. After a further check it was discovered that the air filters were not installed in the affected wards.
The filters were standing unpacked on the floor."
