Hospital workers in Hudson sue MPLS businesses for radiation exposure

Author:

Saying they have been exposed to excess radiation, four Hudson Hospital & Clinics technologists in Wisconsin have filed a lawsuit against the architectural firm that designed the hospital and the construction company that built it 10 years ago.

The Forum News Service reports that the defendants named in the civil lawsuit are Mortenson Construction of Minneapolis; Hammel, Green and Abrahamson, a Minneapolis architectural and design firm; and Hammes Co. of Brookfield, Wis., the company that oversaw and managed construction of the facility.

None of the defendants had comments at press time.

Forum reports that CT technicians say quarter-inch plate glass rather than lead-shielded glass was installed in the windows between the scanning and control rooms, thus exposing the workers to more than 20 times the usual radiation.
