Hospitals Have Body Lice Too!

Because anyone who comes into contact with an existing infestation can contract Body Lice, there is not 100% guaranteed way to prevent that you will ever get them. Hospitals can improve their risk by checking homeless people, elderly patients who are unable to care for themselves and other high-risk individuals before they are admitted to prevent an outbreak of Lice among their population. The same can be said for dormitories, prisons, and nursing homes.
