Veterans home water cleansed of bacterium

The water system at the Nevada State Veterans House in Stone City has actually been cleansed after tests exposed the presence of legionella, the bacterium that triggers the pneumonia-like symptoms of Legionnaires’ condition, according to the Nevada Department of Veterans Services.

A resident of the house who passed away in late April tested positive for the existence of legionella germs, however public health authorities are not certain the resident contracted legionella at the house, department Director Kat Miller stated.

Water samples exposed trace amounts of legionella, common in lots of environments in Southern Nevada, consisting of soil and aquatic systems. The event in April was the first time legionella had been spotted at the veterinarians house, Miller said.

Staff isolated locations that checked positive, evaluated homeowners with pneumonia-like signs and took steps to purge the bacteria from the house, including disinfection of all aquatic systems. A low-chlorine solution was infused into the water supply, new water filters and sink aerators were changed and installed, Miller said.

The individual who died in late April succumbed to an illness not related to legionella, Miller stated, and no other cases have actually been discovered.

Legionella got its name in 1976, when attendees of a Philadelphia convention of the American Legion struggled with an outbreak of a type of pneumonia. In between 8,000 and 18,000 people are hospitalized each year with Legionnaires’ disease in the united state, however numerous infections are not detected or reported, so the number might be greater. Legionnaires’ disease can cause death, but a lot of cases can be treated with antibiotics, and healthy people generally recover from symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, fatigue, weak point, muscles pains and headaches.

Legionella happens naturally, usually in water and specifically in hot and cold water taps, warm water tanks and water in air conditioning systems, according to the Southern Nevada Health District. People acquire legionella when they breathe in a mist or vapor infected with legionella.

People most at threat of illing are older individuals, those who smoke or consume heavily, or those who have a chronic lung illness.

Cases of Legionnaires’ disease prevail and typically investigated only to confirm the diagnosis and rule out a break out. When an outbreak occurs, an investigation is conducted to try to find a possible environmental source so that additional health problem can be avoided.
