Abstract
In October 1996, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request from the Chief Executive Officer at the Juan F. Luis Hospital and Medical Center for a health hazard evaluation (HHE). The request asked for NIOSH's assistance in investigating employee concerns about adverse health effects possibly related to mold exposures at the hospital. The health concerns included eye irritation, itchy skin, nausea, and respiratory problems. During November 20-22, 1996, a NIOSH industrial hygienist and medical officer visited the facility and performed a walk -through inspection of the hospital.
