April 14th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) Authorities have determined that a contamination of the water supply at Calderon Guardia Hospital has been rectified, and restrictive measures that have affected the hospital for the past two weeks can be lifted.
The medical center’s main water tank was contaminated with diesel fuel. The cause is unknown and is under investigation.
CCSS medical director, Maria Eugenia Villalta said that normal operations would resume today, and that about 180 surgeries that were postponed because of the water contamination would be rescheduled over the next six weeks.
The decision to resume normal operations was made on Sunday, after tests conducted by the Costa Rican Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (AyA) came back negative.
