Pest Control in Freestanding Medical and Dental Offices
Pest control in freestanding medical and dental offices and other allied-health facilities requires specialized knowledge, experience, and sensitivity to the needs of patients and staff. Obviously, patients don't want to encounter pests while they're getting their blood drawn, their teeth fixed, or their moles removed. But neither do they want an "exterminator" spraying smelly chemicals around.
Dayton Exterminating has a long history of treating sensitive accounts like medical offices, laboratories, and specimen collection centers. We also adhere to the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) method of pest control, which emphasizes non-chemical control measures such as inspection, monitoring, and trapping over the use of pesticides whenever possible. We also understand that the unique nature of freestanding health care facilities may require special scheduling and other considerations to minimize the effect of our work upon your work.
Our Medical and Dental Office IPM Program was designed specifically around the needs of medical and dental offices, urgent care facilities, ambulatory surgical centers, MRI and radiology centers, pharmacies, and medical laboratory offices and specimen collection centers throughout the greater Dayton area. We are familiar with sterile field and sample contamination prevention procedures, as well as the precautions necessary for working around biohazard disposal and radiological or magnetic hazard areas.
Our IPM plans for freestanding health-related facilities usually include coverage against the following pests:
- All common cockroach species
- Rats and mice
- Stinging insects
- Stored product pests (moths, weevils, drugstore beetles, etc.)
- Perimeter pests (sow bugs, pill bugs, millipedes, etc.)
- Drain flies and fruit flies
Other pests that can be dealt with in the course of a regular treatment are also covered as a courtesy. Certain pests like termites, wood-destroying beetles, and others that require extensive, specialized control methods are not covered, but will be quoted at deeply-discounted prices if a need arises for their treatment.
HIPAA and Confidentiality Considerations
Although it's rare for our technicians to encounter any patient-specific information, we do understand that whatever information they observe or come across in the course of their work is strictly confidential and is not to be repeated to or discussed with anyone, for any reason. We are happy to sign whatever HIPAA-related documents that you require of contractors and will always honor all medical privacy and confidentiality requirements.
