    One of the toughest issues are insects or pests in hospitals, I ran into Pharaoh Ants once crawling on a air hose in a hospital. I think they were trying to get to the saline or glucose. I have also seen roaches in a operating room and that is really tricky. Those type of institutions must be vigilent in preventing bugs/insects from getting into their facilities. Thanks for the sharing this article.
