One of the hospitalized victims is my aunt. She has been on a ventilator now for two weeks and is in VERY serious condition. There were problems with the water feater since it was installed and people complained about the smell repeatedly. The hospital knew there was an issue and clearly there were medical people to consult who would have guided them to shut it off. Instead, they chose to try abate the issue with dehumidifyers that proved ineffective. While I'm sure administrators didn't intend to harm anyone, this is what you get when corporations are "selling" health care with "calming waterfalls".

Don't try to sue or blame the mighty Aurora nothing is never their fault.The company who installed the fall will be at fault never Aurora. Their hospital are full of bacteria.Just check out all the Isolation carts and signs on doors when you visit. My late husband went in to an Aurora Hospital and acquired in house sepsis and died not Aurora's fault' The Adminstration told me his immune system was comprimise. Watch your family member closely or better yet use another hospital.
