Nurse’s Illness Caused by Exposure to Mould at Work

A nurse at a nursing home reported respiratory problems, headaches, fatigue and other symptoms.

The Appeals Tribunal ruled that there was no evidence to suggest that the nurse’s allergic reaction was created by anything other than toxic mould exposure in the workplace.
