Pest Control for Hospitals and Health Care Facilities
Integrated Pest Management in hospitals, nursing homes, extended-care facilities, medical offices, dental offices, and other health care facilities presents unique challenges.
Obviously, pests are unacceptable in a hospital environment because so many of them are known or suspected vectors of pathogens that can threaten the health of your patients and staff.
Unfortunately, health care facilities, by the very nature of their operations, are prime targets for ant, cockroach, rodent, fly, and bed bug infestations. Many of these pests carry diseases or damage facilities; and pest sightings of any kind can tarnish your reputation, demoralize your staff, and erode confidence in your facility's sanitation and safety.
Pest control at a health-related facility must be performed in such a way as to minimize interference with the facility's operations, as well as with respect for the dignity and confidentiality of patients. All of these factors combine to make pest control at hospitals and health care facilities very challenging. It's very detailed, very precise work.
Our comprehensive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program will protect your environment, reputation, and the health and safety of your patients or residents, visitors and employees. Our service specialists are specially trained in the unique nature of health-care pest control, even including the implications of HIPAA requirements for contractors.
Our technicians will also help you maintain the documentation that you need in order to demonstrate compliance with government regulations, accreditation standards, and insurance company requirements as they relate to pest control.
In addition, our PhD entomologist can also provide on-site, in-service training for your employees on pest management topics such as pest identification, biology and behavior, the significance of pests as vectors, the role of inspection and sanitation in IPM programs, and many other pest- and vector-related subjects.
Our goal is to provide you with the finest pest control possible, in the most effective manner, with minimal disruption of your facility's operations, so that your staff can focus on what is important: patient care.
