Chemical spill causes evacuation of Pahrump medical clinic

A Pahrump medical clinic was evacuated midday Tuesday and two workers were taken to the hospital after a chemical spill, according to a facility spokesman.

Two workers at Calvada Urgent Care, 1501 E. Calvada Blvd., were sent to the hospital as a precaution and later released after the spill of Cidex, a chemical disinfectant commonly used on medical equipment, said David Tauchen, a spokesman for DaVita Healthcare Partners.

Tauchen said fire personnel reported to the scene as a precaution, but no patients were injured.

The facility remained closed Tuesday afternoon as employees worked to clean up the spill area, which was in the back room of the business away from patients, Tauchen said.
