TB probe widens in Vegas after mom, baby deaths
That comes after a mother and her twin babies both died of TB.
Authorities with the Southern Nevada Health District say they're working to contact people who were at Summerlin Hospital's NICU from mid-May to mid-August. A temporary clinic has been set up for testing.
Officials say a 25-year-old mother died in July and an autopsy showed she had tuberculosis. Her 3-week-old daughter died June 1 but wasn't tested for TB. Her second baby died of TB on Aug. 1.
Dr. Joe Iser of the health district says the investigation so far has identified 26 people with TB, although most of them aren't contagious.
