Combating a rising incidence of Legionnaire's disease.Nurs Times. 2006 Sep 26-Oct 2; 102(39):25-6.NT
A statement released last week by the Health Protection Agency highlighted a recent increase in the incidence of Legionnaire's disease in England and Wales. Although an upsurge in cases is common at this time of year due to people returning from holidays abroad, only a small proportion of the recent cases can be attributed to foreign travel. Nurses need to be aware of the symptoms and what health measures they can take.
