SEATTLE -- A nearly 6-month-old baby has died after contracting an Aspergillus mould infection at Seattle s Children s hospital.
Beth was born in August with a heart condition and was rushed from Tacoma General Hospital to Seattle Children s, where she had three surgeries, beginning when she was 5 days old.
At some point at Seattle Children s, Beth contracted an infection in her heart from the Aspergillus mould, a recurring problem that has sickened patients at the hospital as far back as 2001.
Beth s family is involved in a class-action lawsuit against Children s, first filed in December on behalf of the families of patients who have been sickened from the mould.
