GI Veterans Home takes extra precaution with bacteria outbreak|
Extra precautions are being taken at the Grand Island Veterans' Home after a strain of Legionella bacteria was discovered last month at the Grand Island Veterans Affairs facility. New shower heads with filters have been installed, as well as filters in the home's whirlpools. The bacteria can be spread through a contaminated water supply. Grand Island Veterans' Home Quality Assurance Manager Kathy Anderson says there's only a three percent rate of infection associated with the strain found. The Grand Island Veterans' Home has 205 members.
