Since 1993, MCG hospital has been engaged in full scale warfare against environmental contaminants, going back into its history. Records obtained as part of a lawsuit against MCG Health reveal that employees have complained for years about illnesses that appear to be related to mold and mildew. Workers complained of headaches, cold and allergic symptoms Recurrent sicknesses seemed to disappear at home and reappear when employees returned to work in mold contaminated areas.
The big problem is that the hospital denies that there is a mold issue. Employees who filed complaints were eventually fired, even though the complaint was valid. (See Todd Brandenburg)
Part of the contention is that mold toxin is officially defined not as a general toxin but as an allergen.
