Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health confirmed Monday that it was trying to eliminate bed bugs at the downtown facility. “An incidence of bed bugs was recently discovered,” according to a statement from IU Health. “To ensure the safety of our patients and families, we work closely with our infection control and environmental services departments to ensure the incident is isolated and dealt with in a timely manner." Fox59 has received photos of bed-bug bites from a man who claims his family has been dealing with the problem for more than two weeks while his newborn daughter stays at the hospital. The family said that hospital staff recently moved them to a new room.
