Documentation: A Critical Step to Successful Pest Management

Why Documentation is Essential to IPM Programs in Healthcare Environments

In integrated pest management (IPM) programs, success depends on your ability to adjust and optimize the performance of the program. And knowing how it’s preforming is really only possible with thorough documentation. 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 IPM in healthcare environments. The final video explains why documentation is a crucial element of a successful IPM program.

Dr. Harrison will elaborate on what specifically should be included in each service ticket to:

  • Assess effectiveness of pest management methods

  • Evaluate pest trends

  • Track pesticide applications

  • Meet Joint Commission accreditation requirements

  • Demonstrate accountability
