Mesa Hospital Allegedly Has Bedbugs

Mesa Hospital With Alleged Bedbug Infestation

Tiny and horrifying…Were talking about bedbugs and the shocking place one valley couple said they found an infestation. Not a hotel or home, but an East Valley Hospital. Definitely not something you want to find in a place that’s supposed to be sterile and clean.

Hospital officials at the Mountain Vista Medical Center are on high alert after a possible bedbug infestation was reported by a patient and his wife. They were notified after Kathy Troutt, featured in the above video, told them she was bitten by the bugs.

Mrs. Troutt claims to have found the bedbugs inside the arms of the hospital room guest chair while she was spending the night waiting for her husband to recover from surgery. When she saw the bugs, she immediately notified the hospital staff and snapped a picture. The room with the alleged bedbugs was cleaned and quarantined according to the news report from AZCentral.

Troutt is adamant that she didn’t have bedbugs in her clothes, and that she did not bring them in to the hospital. When Trout was asked if she may have brought the bedbugs in by accident she said, “I’m certain that these did not come from me.”

The Mountain Vista CEO released the following statement:

“Our hospital follows rigorous protocols regarding pest control. If an issue is brought to our attention, it is dealt with promptly and effectively.”

Update From Arlin Troutt On Yelp:

Bedbug infestations are on the rise. These bloodsucking pests can be found in homes, apartments, dorms, hotels, motels, and now hospitals. International travel and immigration have probably contributed to the resurgence of bedbugs in the United States. This increase has led to many bedbug laws and legislature to help combat these tiny bloodsuckers.

Bedbugs are a parasitic insect that feed exclusively on blood. Their bites cause itchiness, redness, and irritation. Bedbug bite symptoms can take several says to dissipate. Bedbugs are reddish-brown in color, and look much like a flattened apple seed.

If you are experiencing bedbug problems, get pest control!

Chris showed up as planned and was here for 3 hours for a first appointment with them. I have never had a pest control company take the covers off of all the electrical outlets before. Very detailed work. He treated the front and back yards with special emphasis on getting to the scorpions, which is what we need.

Overall Grade: A

Devin arrived promptly within the scheduled time frame, and kindly explained the treatments as well as a follow-up, ongoing service schedule if I should wish to continue to retain their services. I showed him a few scorpions that I had caught and he identified them as bark scorpions. Then he started with the interior treatment by spraying some Delta Dust inside the walls through the electrical outlets in each room. He explained that the dust is very fine and gets into the pours in the belly of the scorpion and they can’t breathe. As he began the exterior treatment, he showed me their very large truck and the 2 chemicals they use which targets scorpions, spiders, crickets, earwigs, roaches and silverfish.

Overall Grade: A

- Deborah R.
Gold Canyon, AZ

The technician that came out was very friendly and answered all my questions. He did an “in-wall” treatment and sprayed both inside and outside my home. They now come every two months automatically, but I can cancel service at any time. Before they started coming, even when I used another pest control service, I’d still find live scorpions and roaches inside sometimes. (Even though I keep a clean house, the area I live in is infested!) I haven’t had problems with scorpions since they started coming and the very few roaches I’ve seen in the house have been dead.

Overall, I have been very happy with the professional and friendly service Bulwark has provided. They’ve done a great job and I’m a happy customer!
