A Philadelphia college student died of the same type of meningitis that caused an outbreak at Princeton University in New Jersey, suggesting the strain might still exist on the Ivy League campus despite a massive vaccination effort, federal health officials said Tuesday.
The Philadelphia medical examiner has determined that a Drexel University student's death was caused by bacterial meningitis.
Authorities say the death of a student at a Philadelphia university's sorority house is being investigated as a suspected case of meningitis.
An inexperienced health care caseworker who visited a client at his home knew there was something that made her "very uncomfortable" about the 53-year-old man, even writing in his file that two people should visit him in the future.
Afterward, Ms. Ross wrote about being "very uncomfortable" with Mr. Smith, according to Dade City police Officer Brian Uppercue, who said authorities reviewed the file.
She said the cause of death hasn't yet been determined, but the university is treating it as a suspected case of meningitis and is working with the city health department.
