Quotes

"There's a fairly broad list of diseases and injuries that we are obligated to report to the state of Louisiana, but this is not one of them" said John Heaton, M D , Associate Medical Director at Children's Hospital
"DHH participates in statewide efforts to prevent infections, which we and the CDC find to be the most effective way to limit HAIs. We routinely communicate with infection prevention specialists throughout the state, including through discussions and presentations with hospitals, long-term care facilities and epidemiologists, among others. This communication is thorough and ongoing."
"I have personally reached out to several of these families today to express our regret, to communicate all of the information that we have, and those I was unable to reach today we will reach by mail, or hopefully by telephone going forward" stated Dr. Heaton
