MARTINSBURG, WV— Some patients at the Martinsburg VA Medical Center (MWV) have been relocated due to the discovery of mold in several units.
The center says staff members noticed mold in an air-conditioning unit last Thursday. Upon further inspection and the discovery of more mold, they decided Friday to relocate patients.
According to MWV, their own staff began clean up on the same day they found the mold, and they brought in a professional abatement crew yesterday.
They say the health risks connected to the common mold that was found are very low, but they are taking every precaution to ensure their patients' safety.
