Ambulances are frequently infested with bedbugs — and the problem is only getting worse.

Ambulances that have bedbugs are taken out of commission for as long as three hours while the vehicle is cleaned. Replacement ambulances are brought in, but there still is a potential risk to patients.

That’s taking one of our 20 ambulances out of the community. Somebody nearby could be having a heart attack and that does jeopardize their care.

Paramedics have advanced tools at their disposal to avoid bed bugs, including a spray to kill them on contact, checking in with a database of known infestations, a plastic covering that keeps bedbugs from leaving patients’ clothing, and a special suit that patients or paramedics can wear to keep the bedbugs from spreading.

However, paramedics do all they can to keep bedbugs out of their rigs. Every ambulance carries a spray that kills bedbugs on contact, a plastic bag to place around patients and a Tyvek suit that can be worn by patients or paramedics. They’re also trained to notice the signs of an infestation.

Still, ambulance companies and paramedics believe they can do more, which is why many are handing out informative pamphlets to patients with bedbugs.
