Instances of bedbugs are becoming more and more common. The problem of bed bugs is also forcing EMS to ask for more resources from cities and towns. In fact, it can cost several thousand dollars to decontaminate ambulances of bed bugs over the course of a year.

Worse, if an ambulance is found to have bed bugs, if can remain out of service for as long as three hours while it undergoes treatment for exterminating bed bugs. Although a "reliever" ambulance can be brought in, taking any ambulance out of circulation poses a possible threat to patients.

This is because it is taking one of the ambulances out of the community. Somebody nearby could be having a heart attack and lacking an ambulance could jeopardize their care.

However, paramedics do all they can to keep bed bugs out of their rigs. They often carry a spray that kills bed bugs on contact, a plastic bag to place around patients and a Tyvek suit which can be worn by patients or paramedics.

Many EMS also keep a permanent data base of known bed bug infestations, so paramedics can take all of the necessary precautions before treating a patient. In addition, paramedics are trained to see the tell-tale signs of bed bug infestations.

EMS will not refuse to transport a patient to the hospital if bed bugs are present.
