Pest Control Services for the Healthcare Industry

Healthcare Trusts, Local Authorities and Governing bodies all have a duty of care to their employees, patients and visitors. A pest infestation can breach that duty – leading to expensive and time-consuming litigation.

In the 24/7/365 world of healthcare, where hospitals can resemble small cities, we have seen that cost cutting has led to some derelict sites, which makes constant monitoring and pest control especially vital. Food and warmth, not to mention the foliage of hospital grounds and the interconnecting corridors of heating and water systems, make healthcare facilities a perfect breeding ground and development environment for pests and birds.

Moreover, whether it’s a hospital, nursing home, clinic, doctor or dentist’s surgery, when dealing with Healthcare pest control, discretion and sensitivity are vital.

Healthcare facilities have a statutory responsibility to take the appropriate control measures and that is where we can help you. With over 30 years of Healthcare experience, Safeguard is expert in monitoring, preventing and controlling pests. We provide innovative, bespoke and discreet solutions to help prevent the cross contamination and secondary infections which pests can cause.
