Unless it's stated somewhere in the hospital, a visitor can bring baked goods for hospital staff. The nurses who ate the cake don't deserve to be tested for diseases, but the lady deserves to be sued and/or fined for making the nurses have to be tested.

This is exactly why I never eat anything from anyone I do not know. Where I work, people are always offering me stuff for helping them, I kindly refuse them.

Tuberculosis is what they test dairy cows for, when the milk is sold unpasteurized or from "Anti-biotic free" cows. That and Brucella (which causes spontaneous abortions in pregnant cattle).

Sorry Richard, but even just a nipple could be enough to spread disease, so they definitely should get tested. You wouldn't want to make a boob of yourself, and be stuck with bad mammeries of this situation in the future.

Agreed, it's udderly unthinkable to take something like that from someone you barely know without busting out the questions first. Especially in that line of work.

I work in the frontline in healthcare, so it is not uncommon to receive cards and goodies from visitors or the patients themselves. We have to use our own judgement as to whether to eat them after accepting the goods - home baked goods are likely not going to be eaten vs packaged goods where the seal is not broken. It seems to me that OP and her colleagues trusted the woman enough to eat it, and chances are they were starved and did not even think twice before digging in.
