Bed bugs are on the rise all over the US. They infest homes, businesses and even hospitals. A single bed bug hitching a ride on a patient can quickly turn into a hospital-wide infestation. Bed bugs in hospitals need to be dealt with swiftly and with proactive inspections.
Why Bed Bugs Love Hospitals
Busy hospitals are places where bed bugs can be easily introduced and thrive. Facilities with a constant turnover in patients will face regular threats from infestation. While bed bugs do not transmit disease, their bites can result in allergic reactions or secondary skin infections. Which can cause unneeded stress and worry on already struggling patients.
How They Get In
Though hospitals are held to the highest standards of sanitation, they too can suffer from bed bug infestations. Part of the reason for this is because the people being admitted are not coming from environments with those same standards. Just as it is common to find a cockroach in a suitcase that has hitched a ride to your home, bed bugs can be found on the clothes or in the overnight bags of patients who have been admitted. Like cockroaches, it only takes a single bed bug to start an infestation.
How To Avoid an Infestation of Your Hospital
Whenever bed bugs enter a new environment, they will seek out places to hide. There these pests will wait for your patients to fall asleep so that they can feed. This can lead to more complications with already ailing patients. Hospitals should take the initiative to proactively eliminate bed bugs by conducting regular inspections of their rooms. Early detection means eliminating the pests before an infestation can spread throughout the entire facility.
