Healthcare facilities are high-traffic environments, often with frequent room turnover. And although there’s an emphasis on sanitation, any facility with heavy foot traffic can become susceptible to pest introductions such as bed bugs, cockroaches, flies and ants. With Western’s focus on long-term prevention programs and our 24-hour response time to short-term control issues, you can rest assured that pest management is another thing you can check off your list.

Pest Control in Healthcare Facilities

From clinics and nursing homes to regional hospitals, healthcare facilities need proper pest control. Along with constant foot traffic from employees, residents, and visitors, regular room turnover makes medical centers prime targets for infestations. Western uses integrated pest management strategies for the healthcare industry to help protect your staff, your patients, and your reputation.

Common Pests in the Healthcare Industry

Bed bugs are a common problem for healthcare facilities across the Mid-Atlantic. These tiny, dark brown insects hitchhike in on bags, pant cuffs, and even on the bottom of a shoe. They will hide in mattresses, bed frame crevices, and other furniture during the day and feed on unsuspecting sleepers at night. A bed bug bite can irritate the skin and cause allergic reactions in patients. The resulting client complaints may lead to loss of business or even litigation.

Hospitals and clinics often need commercial pest control to remove cockroaches from the premises. After entering healthcare facilities through drains and sewer pipes, these insects invade bathrooms, kitchens, and cafeterias. Roaches hide in cabinets and under appliances by day and spread pathogens as they search for food crumbs at night.

Mid-Atlantic healthcare professionals may also find mice inside their facilities. Rodents often enter buildings searching for food and warmth, and patient rooms, cafeterias, and waiting areas offer everything the pests need. As mice and rats look for meals on tables, counters, and food prep areas, they contaminate surfaces with fur and droppings as well as bacteria like E. coli and Salmonella.

How Do Pests Invade Healthcare Facilities?

Some pests get into healthcare facilities through open doors and windows. In other cases, visitors and employees may unknowingly carry spiders and insects inside as they enter the building. Western Pest Services provides professional pest control solutions for healthcare facilities to remove insects and rodents, prevent future infestations, and protect your reputation.
