Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite
Two years ago, bed bugs forced patrons from a South Carolina hotel in the wee hours of the morning. Last summer, bed bugs closed theaters in Ohio. A few months ago, bed bugs sent a social worker scurrying home to de-bug.
Aware of the facility's critter issue, the social worker had taken precautions by scheduling client visits in a room devoid of carpet or any fabric, including the chairs (which were wooden). Still, she ended up a meal for the parasitic insects.
How big of an issue are bed bugs where you live? If you work in home health, or in a facility that has unwanted guests, what precautions do you take?
