Healthcare facilities, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical centers, rehabilitation centers, and even ambulances must meet the highest level of sanitation. This is especially true due to the population they must care for on a day to day basis.
Pests pose an immediate threat to healthcare facilities because of their ability to spread bacteria and diseases. This violates health codes and puts patients at risk. It is crucial for facility managers to be prepared to effectively fight an infestation.
High-Risk Pests for Health Care Facilities
Cockroaches have a resilient nature with the ability to breed quickly in a variety of environments. Cockroaches are one of the worst pests to find in a healthcare facility because they have the ability to spread bacteria, cause allergic reactions, and even trigger asthma attacks.
Because bed bugs are so small, they are difficult to observe. All too often, managers don’t realize that they have an infestation until patients begin to show symptoms of bed bug bites – this may include itchy and painful bites.
Bed bugs are commonly found in beds, baseboards, furniture, and small, warm spaces. This makes certain healthcare facilities the perfect breeding ground for bed bugs that have the ability to reproduce at a rapid pace.
Stored Product Pests
Facilities that store grains and dried goods are at risk of being affected by stored product pests. These pests can move and spread through product quickly. This violates health codes and putting the facility at risk of costly downtime. There are a variety of product pests, including beetles, moths, and mites.
Risks of Pests in a Health Care Facility
If a healthcare facility suffers a pest infestation, they are sure to feel the negative effects. Most importantly, the patients in the facility could become ill due to bacteria being spread. Additionally, infestations can also cause major financial damage. They put the company reputation at risk and cause major downtime.
