Skilled nursing facilities are at increasing risk of attracting bed bugs and other common pests like ants, flies, cockroaches and rodents — simply because they provide everything vermin need to thrive. “Thwarting the wrong LTC move-ins: Bed bugs, flies and other pests — they’re closer than you know” is the title of a special McKnight’s webinar at 1 p.m. ET on May 31.

This webinar will help providers take proactive approaches to keep their residents, staff AND reputation safe from common, and not so common, pests. Featured speaker Tim Husen, Ph.D., will reveal underestimated threats pest pose and  offer strategies that all levels of long-term care workers can pursue to keep themselves and residents safe.

Among other things, attendees will learn: Specific threats that bed bugs and other common pests pose to skilled nursing residents and workers; how new research can help combat persistent pests such as bed bugs; how staff can detect and eradicate pest hot spots; and what documentation is necessary to stay audit-ready. McKnight’s Editor James M. Berklan will moderate the event, which is being sponsored by Orkin.
