First Health Richmond Memorial Hospital in Rockingham has worked around the clock with a bat removal company to get the animals out of the building.
In the meantime, the hospital has had to move all of its patients out. The only people allowed to stay are those currently being treated in the Emergency Room.
Health inspectors have determined that there is no evidence of bat droppings in the hospital. Officials said once all the bats are removed, the hospital should not pose any lingering risk to patients or employees.
