There are a lot of things you have to worry about while running a long-term health care facility. Patient health and safety are your top priorities, and that’s what makes pest control and prevention crucial for your facility. There are many challenges involved in controlling nuisance insects and rodents in a medical setting, but at ASAP Pest Control, we’re here to help. You can rely on our expertise in commercial pest control to keep your facility reliably pest-free.
Pests Can Devastate Your Medical Facility
Whether you operate a nursing home, senior assisted living community, rehabilitation center, or another type of long-term care facility, guarding against infestations is essential — both for your patients and your facility’s reputation. Providing a clean and healthy environment is priority number one, and issues with bed bugs, flies, rodents, or other pests will damage the trust that patients and their families place in you.
More importantly, a pest infestation will negatively affect your patients. Insects of all types are of particular concern for long-term care facilities, as they can be direct causes of illnesses and secondary infections, particularly for non-ambulatory patients. Potential disease-carrying insects are also a major threat to any medical care facility.
