The hospital may waive the cost of future procedures and treatments for the patients affected, according to WKYC. We are committed to getting answers and working with patients individually to address their concerns.
DePompei said the temperature fluctuation had occurred "due to reasons unknown" and that the hospital had launched a major investigation to find out what happened.
