Geisinger NICU Deaths Get National Attention
MOUNT POCONO, Pa. -- Geisinger officials said eight babies in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) contracted waterborne bacteria. Three died. The news is quickly getting national attention. In the Poconos, people are stunned. "That's absurd. It's a hospital where people are supposed to be healed, not killed. It's sad that something like this has gone that far where you know three children have died. It's horrible," said Scott Magee of Pocono Township.
