Last Wednesday a patient brought bedbugs into Kaweah Delta Medical Center. The staff immediately took control of the infestation to prevent further spreading the staff was forced to call an exterminator into the emergency department. The patients were transferred to different rooms while the infested rooms were being treated.
It was confirmed that the staff examined every room in the emergency department and also brought in bug control. This successfully prevented the bugs spreading to the other patients.
Bedbugs are not known to spread diseases, but can cause itching and red bumps. Some people may even have an allergic reaction.
