    As the title says, I was with a patient and noted a bug crawling on them, swept it off and killed it. Looking at it, it looks to be a bedbug! But I'm not 100% certain, so before I start the notification process for everyone I would like a confirmation. Thank you all in advance!

    Thank you! I'll have to quarantine that room then as a precaution when they leave. Hopefully they just had the one with them, now I'm concerned.

    I would definitely be taking precautions. Wouldn't want you or another patient taking them home too!

    I've sprayed the room down with an alcohol solution, but they are recovering from a procedure and cannot leave. It's not going to be fun telling them in the morning that they probably have bedbugs. We will have the place heat treated though, I'm reading that's probably the best soultion.

    Yeah heat is, wish I could've done it! My exterminator quoted me $4,00 for heat treatment
