The outpatient area of C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital in New York was restricted recently because of bedbugs, according to the Post-Star.
A patient came to the outpatient Cancer Center with bedbugs, according to a hospital spokesperson.
In response, the facility restricted the area and gave it a thorough cleaning.
The hospital tried to contact all patients who had an appointment scheduled to tell them of the restriction.
The area was reopened three days later.
