Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) that would require healthcare and residential facilities to have a bedbug maintenance plan in place with a licensed exterminator was passed by the Senate today.

“Any facility where people stay overnight should have a plan in place, ready to be carried out at a moments notice should bedbugs be discovered, ” Singer stated. “Senior citizens, hospital patients and tourists throughout New Jersey all have a right to know that the bed they are sleeping in is clean, safe and free of bedbugs.”

The law would apply to hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, comprehensive personal care homes, hotels and motels, rooming and boarding houses, emergency shelters for the homeless, and basic center shelters or residential care facilities for youth.

“Bedbugs are a formidable pest problem that must be dealt with swiftly and efficiently, ” Singer continued. “It is in everyone’s best interest to have a comprehensive plan in place to keep people safe.”
