A Medical Facility Is No Place for a Pest to Inhabit
By and large, the only places we believe pests should inhabit are the outdoors. Unfortunately, they are constantly on the hunt for warm shelter, food and water. Medical facilities provide all three and will always be a prime target. The reason pest management is so important for an establishment like a hospital is the secondary risk of infection. Cross-contamination from pests such as flies, rats, mice, bed bugs, or roaches is a very real possibility. In other environments they are a serious threat, within a hospital, they become a major liability.
Try to imagine a patient becoming sick or even dying due to a secondary infection caused by a pest outbreak or infestation. Not only would it be a legal problem for your medical facility, but a nightmare for the patient’s family and a real wound to your reputation.
Controlling & Preventing Pest Problems Before They Occur
In sensitive environments such as hospitals, our technicians have to be very strategic in how they plan to get rid of a pest invasion. This is done with the help of our support staff and head entomologist. We can’t just go spraying pesticides wherever we spot an issue either due to the sanitary environment we are in. Therefore we utilize a series of protocols backed up within Integrated Pest Management. It basically means providing treatment and pest prevention solutions while absolutely minimizing the usage of any pesticides. If the problem is severe and we do have to use products, rest assured that they will be as low pressure as possible.
Compliance, Management & Reporting Customized to Your Facility
At Standard Pest Management, our team consists of a dedicated support staff, field technicians and our head Entomologist. At someone in charge of a health care facility you must deal with your own fair share of reporting, analysis and record keeping. We’re proud to say that we do the same in order to maximize efficiency. By providing electronic reporting, record keeping and proper monitoring, we are able to save your organization time and money all the while protecting patients and staff from pests.
Cutting Edge Technology for Health Care Pest Management
Our field technicians carry wireless handheld devices with proprietary pest management software that will not only help collect and transmit data to Standards support staff but will also provide the technician with information on areas that need to be monitored consistently. We also use barcode scanning software to monitor pest bait stations and timestamp service visits. This way, we know exactly when they need to be replaced and how effective they are.
