CALGARY, ALBERTA, Canada — Failure to quickly clean up water on the floor after a toilet or sink overflowed has apparently led to at least 30 nurses in a Canadian hospital complaining of health problems relating to mold contamination. CBC Edmonton reported that at least 30 nurses working at Foothills Hospital have complained for months of headaches and breathing problems that apparently are related to a two-foot patch of mold recently discovered in the unit in which they work. Officials said there is no direct evidence linking the health problems to the mold, but the nurses only started complaining about the ailments after the toilet or sink overflowed.
