SOUTHEND HOSPITAL has a two-station bed infection.
The outbreak was revealed after contacting Echo with a hospital staff, the problem was a risk to patients, visitors and staff.
The two rooms have been infected so far – the Eastwood room, specializing in gynecology and specializing in those who take care of the Balmoral room.
It is understood that the hospital had a fumigator in the rooms to face the problem and the patients had to leave the room.
The employee, who continues to be anonymous, said: "Everyone seems to be spreading still and people would take home, if not soon.
"They had a pest control week ago but the rooms still infested with them."
Denise Townsend, a Nursing Director of the NHS Foundation Trust at the Southend University Hospital, said: "We can confirm that the Board of Trustees has suffered minor infections of bed bugs, limited to a small area in both areas.
"That is to say, with the cooperation of professional accident control treated and treated correctly.
"Bed bugs are easily transported by luggage, clothing and furniture.
"Patients and staff have been advised to reduce the number of personal belongings that are in contact with them to reduce them to a minimum and control our infection control groups to review any snack or snack to prevent further spread."
Bed bugs are parasitic and can cause bites and itchy red blush on the skin.
Bites are painless, but people react.
Within a few minutes, at least a week or two can bite again.
Bites of rashes and fluid-filled blisters can occur in severe cases and may be infected even if scratched.
Pest control experts say Rentokil told hospital hospitals the presence may indicate a poor quality of hygiene and sanitation, and cause discomfort in patients.
