A lawsuit stemming from an outbreak of tuberculosis in the neo-natal intensive care unit at Summerlin Hospital will be back in court Feb. 3
Clark County District Court Judge Kenneth Cory will be hearing arguments on whether to certify the case as a class action, consolidating suits on behalf of at least 25 people who tested positive for the lung disease.
The case stems from a May, 2013, episode in which a woman later found to have the contagious disease and her newborn twins were treated at Summerlin Hospital. The suit claims the hospital was negligent in allow at 25 people to be exposed to the disease.
The hospital has been seeking a summary judgment in the matter and Judge Cory has yet to rule on some of those issues.
