Bats raise safety concerns at U of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics

From Becker’s:

Recent bat discoveries have prompted the Iowa City-based University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics to send patient safety alert messages, according to The Gazette.

The most recent UIHC bat was found July 12 in the early afternoon. The hospital receives about 10 reports of bats per year, according to UIHC spokesperson Tom Moore. He did not specify how many bats have been found in the past six months or whether the number of bats is increasing.
