Legionnaires Disease Reported Again at the Illinois Veterans Home
Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs officials say Legionella tests came back positive for two residents at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy.
One of those residents is deceased. The Illinois Veterans Home indicates that individual had a complex medical issue in addition to Legionnaires. The second individual is being treated for the disease. Because of the facilities history with the water vapor borne illness, staff are continuously on the lookout for symptoms. The Illinois Veterans Home dealt with a series of cases during the summer of 2016.
