Pests such as ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, flies, mice, and rats thrive in hospitals and nursing homes. These healthcare facilities not only provide an abundance of nesting areas and food, but they also provide effortless access through windows, doorways and on visitors clothing or other items they may bring into the facility.
Once they’ve made their way in, these pests can be very dangerous. Salmonella and streptococcus are carried by certain types of ants, which have been known to penetrate open wounds or intravenous sacks. Cockroaches, on the other hand, can bear more than 30 different pathogens on their own.
Not to mention, flies can hold over 100 different forms of disease-causing species, and some hospitals have even found their larvae in patients’ open wounds. Rodents, on the other hand, will chew through electrical wiring, causing damage to medical equipment and spreading bacterial and often fatal viruses.
To summarize, an infestation of these pests will jeopardize patients’ already precarious health and jeopardize the high levels of cleanliness mandated by law. However, many healthcare/long-term care facilities’ diverse physical infrastructure makes in-house pest control impractical.
As long-term care facilities are susceptible to viruses, ensuring an efficient disinfection program can be critical to the health of those who live there.
