The infestation in the nursing home is so bad, the workers keep moving patients from room to room to try to escape and avoid these bed bugs.
Many workers, patients, and visitors are very upset because most of them were not notified about the infestation they had going on at Avalon Gardens nursing home in Smithtown, NY. Visitors were concerned because the nursing home did not get a bed bug control to eliminate the infestation they had going on. They were visiting their parents almost everyday and could have brought a bed bug to their home.
Due to the nursing home not getting a Bedbug exterminator to treat the building, the state Health Department confirmed they are investigating a complaint.
According to one of the workers, Cindy, the nursing home officials continue to move residents from one room to another while new patients are being brought in.
