Sweet ... not!

I just got this weird letter in my inbox -- no attribution, not signed, how professional is that? -- saying that the University of Iowa Hospital (where I work) has had outbreaks of Legionnaire's disease. Two people contracted the disease, one of them subsequently died, though they're not sure the Legionnaire's caused it.

Just goes to show, hospitals are giant germ farms. I'm glad I don't work anywhere near patients, but it's just another reason to obsessively wash my hands when I'm at work.
