Exposure to pathogenic fungi in a voluntary hospital

Exposure to pathogenic fungi in a voluntary hospital

Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology 74(6): 861

The air-delivery heating and cooling system of a suburban voluntary hospital was investigated. Dust and water samples from air vents in patients' rooms on the medical and surgical floors were cultured. A total of 20 rooms were studied with a total of 61 separate samples. Fungi were cultured from samples from each room. Aspergillus spp. were predominant, cultured from 44 of the samples (18 A. niger, 18 A. flavus, 5 A. fumigatus and 3 not determined).
