Pest control for healthcare facilities

Hospitals and nursing facilities face constant pest pressures due to deliveries, storage and preparation of food, high patient or resident turnover, frequent visitors and structural defects. A cockroach, bird, or rodent issue in your healthcare environment poses unacceptable risks to your patients, staff, and visitors. These people expect a safe and hygienic environment. Moreover, as word spreads, physicians, wholesalers, pharmacies, clinics, insurance providers, consumers and patients will all lose trust in your brand.

Below are just a few of the negative impacts pests can have on your facility:

  • Structural and equipment damage
  • Contamination of products and materials
  • Legal action for non-compliance
  • Damage to your brand and reputation

With Rentokil, pests are not tolerated at any time, under any circumstances, for any reason. Find out about our commercial pest control services for healthcare facilities by calling 1-855-633-6260 or contacting us online.

Common pests in healthcare facilities

Using the most innovative products, equipment, and treatment methods, our highly trained Specialists eliminate active infestations quickly and then implement preventive maintenance programs to combat future pest issues. Some of the most frequent pest concerns in hospitals are:

Bed bugs - Hospitals are known to be sterile environments. A bed bug infestation can negatively affect that reputation. Our PROTECT+ System provides an integrated approach to controlling these pests in your facility, utilizing conventional and heat treatments, fumigation, steam remediation, and mattress and box spring encasements.

Rodents - Rodents can endanger the health and safety of your patients and staff via the diseases they spread. Rentokil has a wide range of professional rodent solutions that include monitoring systems, rodenticides, and non-toxic control methods to remove rats and mice from your property.
Birds - Birds put people in your facility and your reputation at risk. Rentokil can implement a number of effective, humane solutions to deter birds from your premises and protect your patients, visitors, and employees.

Flies - Flies are no minor issue and are known to spread a number of diseases. To keep your facility safe from flying insects, as well as avoid regulatory and compliance failures, Rentokil Specialists can employ a range of solutions. We’ll work with you to develop an integrated plan to keep flying insects away from your property.

Preventative pest control for healthcare facilities

A major part of Rentokil’s Integrated Pest Management approach for hospitals and other healthcare facilities is pest prevention. We do this by setting up traps and monitoring devices in and around your properties. We also work to limit pests’ ability to enter your properties by sealing up external access points like holes or cracks, replacing screens on entryways, and fixing defective pipes and drains.

Additionally, our Specialists will advise your team on proper sanitation methods to prevent pest issues from becoming a full-blown infestation, putting your patients and staff at risk. Simple steps such as storing food properly in break areas and following proper cleaning procedures will discourage pests from invading. All of these steps can help to save your facility from the costly repairs and treatments that come with an out-of-control pest infestation on your property.
