3 Steps to Integrated Pest Management in Healthcare Environments

Orkin Pro Consulting in Healthcare Setting

Need a quick refresher on the crucial elements of an ideal pest control program for your healthcare environment? Orkin's three-part video series, brought to you by Orkin's Dr. Ron Harrison and the Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE), is your guide to the basics of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in healthcare. In this first short video of the series, Dr. Harrison walks you through best practices and techniques to help prevent pests and the diseases they carry from affecting your patients, staff and bottom line. An IPM program should be customized to your specific needs, but all programs will include a collaborative and ongoing cycle of these three major areas:

  1. Assessing the situation with a thorough inspection

  2. Implementation of control methods

  3. Monitoring for effectiveness

After you watch this video, you'll understand the IPM process and be able to set up an effective program of your own – and start experiencing the benefits, such as increased efficacy, cost savings, reduced environmental impact and fewer health risks at your facility.
