Legionnaires’ Disease at St. Margaret Hall in Cincinnati

At least one resident at St. Margaret Hall nursing home in Cincinnati has been diagnosed with Legionnaires’s disease. The skilled nursing and short-term rehab facility has placed restrictions on bathing while water filters are installed.

Legionnaires’ disease is not contagious. It is transmitted when people breathe in water droplets contaminated with Legionella bacteria. Outbreaks are often linked to hot tubs, fountains, and the plumbing systems of hotels and healthcare facilities.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers water management plans, which can prevent the overgrowth of Legionella, industry standard in healthcare settings, hotels, and other commercial buildings. It is not clear if St. Margaret Hall had a plan in place.
