Bedbug forces shutdown at UMDNJ

Bedbug forces shutdown at UMDNJ

Closes exam and waiting room at Newark center

They are small, elusive and powerful — just one of these tiny, parasitic insects has the power to evacuate two rooms in one of New Jersey's largest medical facilities.

Wednesday, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey closed an exam room and a waiting room at its Ambulatory Care Center at 140 Bergen Street in Newark when a single bedbug was found among the belongings of a patient visiting the center.

According to UMDNJ spokesman Jeffrey Tolvin, the Ambulatory Care Center is a free-standing building which serves outpatients. The rooms, which were closed and treated even before the insect was fully identified, reopened Thursday.
