Healthcare facilities must maintain a zero tolerance policy against pests, not just to adhere to regulations, but also to safeguard their operational procedures, reputation, and in the interest of protecting human health. The presence of pests in a healthcare environment can contaminate medical supplies and equipment such as dressing materials, intravenous drips, syringes and catheters. Pests also impact hygiene sensitive surfaces through feeding, droppings and the shedding of skin or tissue. The risk to patients’ healthcare is clear. There’s also significant potential for complaints, adverse publicity, loss of revenue and damage to reputation.
We understand that pests can pose serious health risks to patients, staff, and visitors, which is why we offer comprehensive pest control services tailored to meet the unique needs of healthcare facilities. Our team of pest control experts has extensive experience working with hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities to protect them from the risks associated with pests. We utilise the latest pest control methods and technologies to ensure that your healthcare facility remains safe for everyone.
This is the first step in any pest control program. Pest control experts can identify areas of concern and potential entry points for pests, such as cracks and crevices, and develop a customised pest management plan for the facility.
Our IPM program focuses on prevention rather than treatment. It involves identifying and eliminating the root cause of pest infestations rather than simply treating the symptoms. Our experts work with healthcare facilities to develop customised IPM plans that address the unique pest control needs of each facility.
We offer digital pest control solutions to healthcare facilities. Our remote monitoring and control systems can detect and capture pests and provide real-time alerts to our pest control experts, allowing us to respond quickly to pest infestations and prevent them from becoming a larger problem.
The Lumnia range of ILTs uses LED technology to attract and capture flying insects. They are designed to be discreet, energy-efficient, and easy to maintain, making them an ideal solution for healthcare facilities where hygiene and patient comfort are of the utmost importance.
Birds can be a nuisance in healthcare facilities (particularly in common outdoor respite areas) and can carry dangerous diseases. Our bird control methods include bird netting, spikes, and exclusion techniques to prevent birds from entering or nesting in your facility.
