St. Joe’s nurse contracts chicken pox

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

Staff at St. Joseph’s hospital are taking precautions after a nurse broke out in a case of chicken pox.

The nurse came down with the virus on June 28.

Since then staff have backtracked to the departments she had been working on, to test staff and patients she would have come into contact with.

Those departments include the King Street East Urgent Care Centre, renal transplant and urology.

So far, all but four people have been cleared. They are waiting on blood results from the remaining four to determine whether or not they are immune.
