RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A hospital in Henrico County temporary closed its emergency room after staff discovered a patient had bedbugs.

Bon Secours spokeswoman Charlotte Perkins tells media outlets that St. Mary's Hospital immediately cleared the waiting room after the bedbugs were discovered Saturday. Adult patients seeking emergency treatment were rerouted to the pediatric emergency department.

The emergency room was closed for four hours while an exterminator treated the facility.
