NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An equipment malfunction caused a big scare Monday morning at a Brooklyn nursing home.

It happened at the Concord Nursing and Rehabiliation Center on Madison Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant. There was a problem with the center’s oxygen delivery system which impacted any patient who was hooked up to a ventilator.

Those patients were taken to nearby hospitals.

The nursing home was able to fix the problem about two hours later.
