Sink taps source of infection that killed three babies
Sink taps were the source of an infection that killed three babies at a Belfast hospital, the Northern Ireland health minister has confirmed.
Edwin Poots told the NI Assembly that the pseudomonas bacteria had been traced to taps at a neo-natal unit in the Royal Jubilee Maternity Hospital.
The unit was deep cleaned at the weekend after six babies were found to be infected.
Three babies died as a result of the infection earlier this month.
