Rat In Operating Theatre
Operations at a hospital were cancelled after a rat was found in an operating theatre. Rat control experts were called into the hospital and as a result, about 40 operations had to be cancelled.
‘Eradicate the problem’ – The Director of Operations at the hospital said she was shocked to learn evidence that a rodent had been found in an operating theatre. She said ‘As soon as we became aware of this fact the following morning, we immediately to steps to thoroughly clean the area and called in external pest control experts to eradicate the problem’.
Rats can spread salmonella and carry the potentially fatal Weil’s disease, so it is vital to call a rat control expert promptly whenever they are seen inside homes or businesses.
