Legionella can cause a serious type of pneumonia called Legionnaires' Disease (LD). LD is most dangerous for people who are at risk, including people who are over 50 years old, smokers, people with a chronic lung disease, people with weakened immune systems, people with cancer, and people with other underlying illnesses.
According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Hospitals, Critical Access Hospitals and Long-Term Care facilities must develop and adhere to policies that test for and inhibit microbial growth in building water systems in order to reduce the risk of growth and spread of legionella in water. LegionellaWatch.com helps you satisfy this requirement.
