GLRPPR Sector Resource: H2E 10 Step Guide to Implementing an Integrated Pest Management Program

Title:
H2E 10 Step Guide to Implementing an Integrated Pest Management Program

Abstract:
Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, goes beyond chemical treatments to take advantage of a much wider variety of pest management techniques. IPM practitioners recognize that pests seek their essential survival needs--food, water and shelter--and that removing some of these basic elements or blocking pests' access to them can curb many pest problems long before chemical pesticides are employed. IPM also supports several Environment of Care standards required for accreditation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) by helping hospitals "manage safety risks," "establish and maintain an appropriate environment," and "improve the environment." This document outlines a ten-step process for implementing an IPM program as recommended by Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E). (PDF Format; Length: 8 pages)
