Hospitals & care facilities

The coronavirus pandemic highlighted how vital infection control is within the healthcare system. Later, infection control became a pressing issue in facilities that deal with vulnerable people such as care homes. The sector is already operating at maximum capacity, therefore any introduction of bacteria and viruses from pests, will prove crippling to any healthcare team.
During the Coronavirus lockdown, we were overloaded with pest control requests from healthcare facilities to help already over-stretched workforce avoid further disruptions. Copley Pest Solutions are proud to have been at the service of the NHS, even at short notice, and continue to work with the NHS and other healthcare providers across the UK. Our pest control technicians are already accustomed to using personal protective equipment (PPE) for infection control. Copley Pest Solutions proactively strives to ensure health risks from unwanted pests are minimised for all vulnerable persons, be it in a care home setting or within a hospital clinic; nothing is left unchecked by us.

For acute episodes, common methods that can be employed include:

  • Baiting: Place attractants in areas frequented by pests like kitchens and dining areas. Once lured in, pests can then be trapped or eliminated using pesticides.
  • Trapping: Physically capture pests using various traps like sticky traps, snap traps, or glue boards. Effective for mice, rats, and flying insects.

Prevention strategies can include:

  • Spotta digital detection systems
  • Sanitation: Store food and garbage in sealed containers, regularly clean and sanitise surfaces, and train employees on proper sanitation practices.
  • Inspection and Monitoring: Regularly inspect all areas of the facility, including kitchens and restrooms, for signs of pests like droppings or gnaw marks. Monitor for early pest detection.
