I know a guy that had heart surgery at the Jubilee a few years ago who recently got a letter from the health authority saying the blood circulation machine that kept him alive during the procedure wasn't cleaned properly and may have been contaminated with a fungus that could cause untreatable illness or death at any time.

Yes, please. More info? My husband had a heart procedure a few years ago at Jubilee. Our friend, open heart surgery at Jubilee 3 years ago. No letters here. What procedure, what year was the operation, when did he get the letter?

I'll get more details tomorrow. His surgery was about five years ago. He says this was reported in the news last year but I couldn't find anything. I know another guy that had a heart procedure around the same time, I'll ask him, too.

 

Sorry, didn't mean to upset anybody with vague information. I am assuming anyone at risk has already been contacted.

Did it end with "have a nice day"?

This is why I bathe myself in purell the moment of leaving the hospital. Gargling with listerine would prevent this?

Next time bring a can of lysol and give the OR a spray down.

I wish I had never seen this image. It's like the same basic design as the final building but much more refined and complete looking.

They built that parking garage to block the view and installed the ugly hydro poles.
