Our most vulnerable populations are those needing hospital care, as well as our aging population who often reside in aged residential care facilities.
When the body’s immune system is weakened, this can lead to an increased risk of contracting Legionnaires disease caused by the Legionella bacteria; a severe form of pneumonia. Many people with Legionnaires’ disease are hospitalised for extended periods of time. For a minority the disease proves fatal, or may result in permanent disablement.
Systems that can harbour Legionella include hot water systems and ice machines. Legionella bacteria within pipework is spread through the dispersion of aerosols produced when running a tap, shower or chilling device.
