Lincoln Nursing Home Treats Room for Bedbugs

By  | 

A Lincoln nursing home says it's treated a patient room for bedbugs that hitchhiked in on a visitor.

Jennifer Knecht is director of marketing for Tabitha, which offers a variety of at-home, residential and health care services to senior citizens.

Knecht said Wednesday that the problem was discovered on Sunday at Tabitha Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.

She says the bedbugs were brought in by a person who was visiting a resident.

They were found in only that patient's room.

Knecht says exterminators were brought in to treat that room and three others nearby as a precaution.
