Healthcare facility managers are of the consensus that it is necessary to provide healthy and sanitary environments for their residents. Ensuring that pests do not bother residents and patients is an integral part of that program. Healthcare facilities are especially vulnerable to the presence of pests because pests contaminate food prep areas, medical equipment, and medical supplies, thereby further endangering the welfare of residents and employees. To that end, managers of healthcare facilities must do their possible bests to ensure that pests are prevented from gaining access to their premises.
An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program is indispensable in addressing the areas where pests may gain access, and in combating the circumstances that allow them to survive and thrive. Managers of healthcare facilities must understand why their premises are attractive to pests, and the many pests that find their facilities inviting
