Exeter Hospital Partially Evacuated After Staff Members Became Ill

Multiple People Injured in'Chemical Release at Hospital

Emergency responders are evacuating a New Hampshire hospital Friday after a report of a chemical release that has affected multiple patients, according to a report from NBC Boston.

The hospital's emergency room was evacuated as a precaution because it was located nearby, but no patients or staff there reported any symptoms, CBS reported.

The turmoil started shortly before 9am, with five staff members in Exeter Hospital's operating room complaining of nausea. As that number started to increase, the hospital closed the operating room and began transferring people out. The fire department said it may have been caused by a carbon dioxide or anesthesia chemical leak.

Officials say they have not been able to find the source of what is making people sick at the hospital.

The cause was not immediately known, she said. No patients at the hospital had any similar symptoms, she said.

Exeter Hospital cleared its emergency room on Friday morning out of an abundance of caution, spokeswoman Debra Vasapolli told local media.
