DENVER, CO - An insect expert is monitoring the Medical Intensive Care Unit at Denver Health after bed bugs popped up this week.

A hospital spokesperson tells us that a patient carried the critters into the hospital on Wednesday.

Workers thoroughly cleaned the area and threw away the patient's mattress.

A close inspection showed no more bed bugs but two other small bugs of unknown origin were discovered.

Denver Health brought in an outside team to investigate those other bugs and they say it's not a sign of a bigger problem.
