The deceased was hospitalized in the ward, but the cause of death has not yet been established, writes NLT on Friday on its website.
– We describe this as a major cluster outbreak and we truly regret what happened, says Jonna Sandh, operations manager for M1, the medical operations in Skövde, to NLT.
At the same time, eight other patients and 21 employees were infected, which is just over half of the total staff in the ward.
Due to numerous cases, the hematology department was temporarily closed for cleaning. An investigation must also be made into the functionality of the ventilation system.
– A large part of the staff is on sick leave, so we are not currently able to take all the care places, says operations manager Jonna Sandh at NLT.
