Patient sues Pittsburgh hospital over mold outbreak
"A lung transplant patient sued a Pittsburgh hospital for negligence on Monday after he contracted a fungal infection in his lungs during a mold outbreak that’s been linked to the deaths of three other transplant patients."
**Moisture is conducive to mold growth. This is why you should NEVER look for hidden areas of moisture with a cheap IR camera (ie… 80x60 resolution), or any other low quality infrared camera.
See the example below of how a cheap IR camera could not detect the moisture on the far right side of the image. The moisture on the far right was from a second source than the first area. This is not a game folks. There is no thermography school in north America that recommends using a low grade infrared camera for doing building scan for moisture. It is a stupid idea and sets you up for liability. You cannot do infrared scans being half blind and justify it to your client or escape the liability. Get some training before you buy an IR camera that is not worth a crap.
(thanks to Mr William T. Misegrades for the image). BTW… I am not selling IR cameras.
