May 7, 2020 — A nurse in California has filed a lawsuit after she developed health problems related to the use of OxyCide Daily Disinfectant Cleaner.
She started working at the Kaiser medical center in the Baldwin Park area of Los Angeles in late February 2020.
About two weeks later, the hospital began using OxyCide throughout its facilities. She was allegedly exposed to OxyCide vapors in the air every day at work.
The problem is that hospital employees were required to use spray-bottles filled with OxyCide to disinfect hospital gowns and goggles.
Within a short time, she began suffering from breathing difficulties, a sore throat, headaches, and nausea, according to the lawsuit.
“Even after plaintiff’s shift ended, her symptoms would linger throughout the night and would only subside after a few days away from OxyCide,” the lawsuit states.
Using OxyCide in a spray bottle is not recommend because it causes unnecessary vapors that can cause nose and eye irritation, shortness of breath, and wheezing, according to the lawsuit, which cites the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Curt against The Permanente Medical Group, other Kaiser entities, and Ecolab Inc.
