As if having to go to a hospital weren't already bad enough for a multitude of reasons... sheesh! I just keep praying that I can stay healthy enough to never have to go back to stay in a hospital, it's horrendously expensive anyway and one can't even rest there; the last time I was in one was in 1992 due to a broken arm that needed surgery, and prior to that in 1984 when my 2nd child was born.

I don't where you've been, but this has been going on for years.

When it's discovered that a pt has bedbugs, lice, fleas or mites, they are isolated and any room they've been in will sealed and fumigated. What you should be concerned about is catching lice on an airplane.

I guess I've just never been admitted to a hospital with bed bugs. Gross!

Great, I'm flying on an airplane next week so I will be worried about lice.

I'd seen about bedbugs being a problem in hotels but not in hospitals, Moderator cut: off topic, not a chat thread

I doubt they spray the planes anymore....the turn around time is far too fast.

Bedbugs Invade Hospitals - Yahoo! Finance
A couple of things to remember: 1-many of these stories are done for shock purposes and really are blown out of proportion and 2-bedbugs can be found almost anywhere. If you are really that concerned you may want to stay away from hotels, regardless of the hotel class. You have a chance of finding bedbugs in 2 star, 3 star or even 5 star hotels and for heaven's sake don't take a cruise, They can be found on cruise ships as well. You might want to be careful when you have house guests, they could bring them in, unbeknown to you or them, in their luggage.

Pesticide Action Network - Pesticide Spraying on Airplanes
How do the risks of the pesticides compare to the risks yellow fever and malaria? If an airline stopped this practice, and someone got sick (or died) from one of these diseases, I am sure there would be a public outcry (and a few multi-million dollar lawsuits) against the decision to stop spraying.
