Case study - London hospital
A patient at a major London hospital contracted Legionnaires' disease from the hospital's water system and died. The case was investigated by the HSE, but no prosecutions were brought. We had recently conducted a legionella risk assessment on site and an action plan was in place to complete our recommendations within a reasonable timeframe.
Case study - Nottingham hotel
A man who had stayed at a Nottingham hotel contracted Legionnaires' disease and died. No direct link with the hotel was ever proved, but the hotel was prosecuted as they had not conducted a legionella risk assessment and their water system was in a poor condition. The associated costs and bad publicity led to their closure shortly afterwards.
