What is your hospital policy regarding precautions for a pt with known bed bugs? Do you maintain contact for the entire length of stay? What about belongings? Can they stay in the room double bagged or do they need to be sent home? What is the process for cleaning the room after discharge?
Just curious as our hospital does not seem to have a clear written down policy and I am concerned because ID has said that as long as their stuff has been bagged and they have been showered there is no need for precautions.
Thanks for your responses!!!
