Three Deaths in Rotterdam Hospital Due to Bacteria

The Inspectorate for Health Care (IGZ) has concluded in an investigative report that the Rotterdam Maasstad Hospital has not adequately reacted to the outbreak of the Klebsiella bacteria. The management of the hospital has misjudged the size, severity and length of the outbreak. Most probably, three patients died due to this bacteria and possibly another ten also. In total, 107 people were infected and 4,000 people were in contact with infected patients. The bacteria was first found in October 2010, only at the end of May 2011 were measures taken.
