IU hospitals find bacteria in tap water

– Indiana University Health is limiting water use at two of its hospitals after water samples at the hospitals tested positive for the bacteria that cause Legionnaires’ disease.

Patients at University Hospital and the Simon Cancer Center can drink only bottled water and cannot bathe or shower with tap water, given the risk of contracting the potentially deadly disease.

The Indianapolis Star reports IU Health officials went room to room Thursday at the two hospitals, explaining the decision to limit patients’ water consumption.
