Treated Following 'Chemical Release' at NH Hospital

Multiple ambulances have responded to Exeter Hospital after a "mass casualty incident" was declared involving more than 20 patients.

A mother taking her newborn to the pediatrician at the hospital said staff told her that only the emergency room is impacted.

Kingston Fire said it has sent two ambulances to Exeter Hospital following a report of a "chemical release" in the emergency room, according to the report.

Between 8:30 a.m. and noon, 19 staff members from the operating room complained of dizziness and nausea, Vasapolli said.

The initial number of staff affected had been 6 people but as that number increase, the hospital closed off the OR Department and moved people out of that department.

"At this time we still have not been able to identify the cause, but obviously we're working diligently to do that", Vasapolli said. Local fire departments say the were dispatched to the area for a report of carbon monoxide leak. The latter was closed out of "an abundance of caution", she said. Some of the patients were transferred to other hospitals in the area.
