SHAWNEE, Kan. - A mother says her daughter suffered a chemical burn on her face near her eyes from swimming at a pool at a metro hotel.

Caras trip from Manhattan, Kansas to Kansas City for her ninth birthday started out well.

The fun included Crown Centers LEGOLAND and Sea Life Aquarium.

She was still smiling as she was about to swim at the Ramada Inn on Shawnee Mission Parkway in Overland Park.

After she jumped in the pool, her mom April Casey noticed a maintenance man testing the water and putting in chemicals.

I didnt think that was safe with the kids and everything being in the pool so we got the kids out, April said.

When she pulled Cara out of the pool, she noticed Caras face was very red and her eyes were bloodshot.

So she took Cara to the hotel room to rinse her off.

Once we got her out of the shower, her face started blistering like right around her eyes, April said.

Emergency room doctors told April Cara suffered a chemical burn to her face and prescribed eye drops Cara is still using.

Yet when April informed the hotel desk clerk, she says he did nothing and kept the pool open.

As a mom, I wanted to go across on that counter, but I had to keep my composure, she said.

The 41 Action News Investigators went to the hotel looking for answers.

The desk clerk said she knew about Caras incident, but said any questions would have to be answered by a woman named Anna whos only there on Saturdays.

When the 41 Action News Investigators asked the clerk what happens when something goes wrong and Anna is not there, the clerk replied, It would be beyond me, it would go up the chain to the owner, I dont know.

Caras pool incident isnt the only issue April had with the hotel.

She took pictures of what she says is mold in various places as well as holes in the pool ceiling and a puddle of rainwater from a roof leak on the pool deck.

The 41 Action News Investigators also found violations from an April 13 inspection by the Kansas Department of Agriculture.

Those violations included one guest room with a suspected blood fecal trail on both headboards.

In the same room, the inspector also found a dead bed bug in the windowsideheadboard and a dead roach in a back open compartment of the mini fridge.

Other violations included mold and caked dirt build up in various places including vents and curtains.

There were no violations listed regarding the pool or pool roof.

When it comes down to your health and safety being atquestion, thats not okay, April said.

Wyndham Hotels owns the Ramada Inn franchise and enters into franchise agreements with hotel owners like the Shawnee Mission Parkway property.

Wyndham released a statement which says, Were deeply troubled by these allegations as they in no way reflect our brand values or the expectations we have of franchisees. Please know were treating this matter with the seriousness it deserves and investigating with the hotels owner.

April also filed a complaint with the Kansas Department of Agriculture based on her experience at the hotel.

A department spokeswoman tells the 41 Action News Investigators there will be a follow-up inspection of the hotel based on Aprils complaint.

Bed bugs are not necessarily a sign of uncleanliness. They have been found in upscale homes and hotels, movie theaters, schools and on public transit.

Orkin recommends homeowners, tenants and travelers all over the world should take the following precautions to help prevent bed bugs:

At Home:

Inspect your home for signs of bed bugs regularly. Check locations where bed bugs hide during the day, including furniture, mattress seams and bed sheets, as well as behind baseboards, electrical outlets and picture frames. Decrease clutter around your home to make bed bug inspections and detection much easier. Inspect and quarantine all secondhand furniture before bringing it inside your home. Dry potentially infested bed linens, curtains and stuffed animals on the hottest temperature allowed for the fabric.

During travel, remember the acronym S.L.E.E.P to inspect for bed bugs:

Survey the hotel room for signs of an infestation. Look for red or brown spots on sheets.

Lift and look in bed bug hiding spots: the mattress, box spring, sheets and furniture, as well as behind baseboards, pictures and even torn wallpaper.

Elevate luggage on a rack away from the bed and wall. The safest places are in the bathroom or on counters.

Examine your luggage while repacking and once you return home from a trip.

Place all dryer-safe clothing from your luggage in the dryer for at least 15 minutes at the highest setting after you return home.

While bed bugs are not known to spread human diseases like many other pests and some people have no reaction to bed bug bites, others may experience itchy red welts and swelling.

Bed Bug Symptoms

It may be hard to tell if you have bed bug bites or bites from another insect. Being aware of bed bug symptoms is the first place to start when diagnosing a bed bug problem. In general, bed bug bites will be red and generally have a darker red spot in the center. Bed bug bites can cause a very irritating itch. They will often form into a rash, made up of many small or raised bumps. These bumps will often appear in a line or as a cluster of dotsthis is because bed bugs tend to feed multiple times at the same location. Bed bug bites are also usually found on exposed parts of the body like the arms, legs, hands, neck and face.

Some of the first symptoms of bed bugs are blood spots on the bed, sheets and pillow case. Another telltale bed bug symptom is small black dots on sheets that resemble black pepper. This is bed bug poop. While they know how to hide, bed bugs may be seen moving about on the bed and other furniture between about 2 to 4 a.m. They may not be obvious to the eye at first, but you can spot the bed bugs through inspection. Bed bugs are flat are resemble a small dark apple seed.

Another bed bugs symptom may be that sleeping partners have completely different reactions to the bed bug bites. For example, one sleeping partner may have no reaction at all while the other may have an allergic reaction including hives, blisters or severe itching.

A doctor should be seen if you have had an allergic reaction or intense skin reaction to bed bug bites. Bed bug extermination is needed to eradicate a bed bug infestation (bed bugs will not leave on their own accord!)

Staff , WVEC 3:37 PM. EDT April 21, 2017

A picture shared by a 13News Now viewer that shows a waffle with mold. The viewer said the waffle was served to a student at Lake Taylor High School.

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Norfolk Public Schools issued a statement Friday regarding social media posts that showed -- or claimed to show -- bugs and problems with cafeteria food at Lake Taylor High School.

Earlier this month, students or staff member saw bed bugs on a number of separate occasions. The school division was aware of the situation and took steps to address it.

Not long after that, a student shared a picture and video with 13News Now that supposedly showed cockroaches in a boys bathroom.

A number of people sent pictures that showed mold on pre-packaged waffles which were available to students in the cafeteria.

Khalilah LeGrand, Senior Director of Communications & Media Relations for Norfolk Public Schools provided this statement:

The continued sensationalized coverage of Lake Taylor High is counterproductive to students, teachers and staff being able to focus on our primary goal of education. Bed bugs are a public health issue. It perhaps would be beneficial to spend time interviewing public health experts who could assist with educating the public about the need to treat infestations at source locations (usually living quarters) and how recurring infestations are inevitable in public spaces such as schools, movie theaters, hotels etc., if the source location(s) goes untreated. It is vitally important that the media assist with dispelling myths about how to treat these pests, instead of continually adding fuel to the fire. It is exploitative to perpetuate this story in the media as there are many variables that could contribute to individuals being exposed to an environment after leaving school, where these pests may be rampant. We can only treat the school and have no control over conditions outside of our buildings.

We certainly take complaints such as this seriously and have employed the established protocols. Lake Taylor High School had bed bug sightings on March 23, 28, 31, April 4 and 5, and in every instance treatment to the affected area occurred. As per the established NPS Bed Bug Protocol, the principal communicated via robocalls and/or letters to parents and guardians. The entire school was treated on Sunday, April 9, with 2 types of pesticide chemicals (D-Force Insecticide-Instant Knockdown Spray and CB-80 Insecticide Residual Spray) which continue to work up to 6-8 weeks after the initial application. The treatment process was witnessed and documented by a State Inspector with the Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (VDACS). It is important to note, that industrial pesticides tend to kill any pests present, (bed bugs, insects, cockroaches, water bugs, etc.) as was likely the case after the treatment over Spring Break. Considering that the bugs on the one picture that has continually been circulated on Facebook were only found in a urinal in a boys bathroom, this very well could have been a prank gone awry. As this was an isolated incident, a communication did not go home to parents in this instance. There have been no other sightings of these bugs since. We will continue to monitor the restrooms/building for any pest issues and will also be treating the school again tomorrow Saturday, April 23 with additional chemicals. I personally visited the school yesterday and found a school in pristine condition with hardworking staff and energetic students happily involved in after-school activities.

With regard to the food issues this week posted on Facebook: After investigating the incident and speaking with the Principal and Senior Director of School Nutrition, it was confirmed that three students discovered mold in pre-packaged waffles and returned them. When the cafeteria manager received them, the students were immediately given a replacement and each student was allowed to open and check the new product in the presence of the manager. We receive all of our chicken products fully cooked. This product pictured is a chicken nugget. The chicken is fully cooked, however sometimes during processing there is a vein that is incorporated into the final product, so on occasion a piece will look like the one in the picture. While it is quite unappetizing, it is safe.

The offer was extended to media outlets to put us in contact with those complaining, however, most of what we were forwarded were anonymous tips. Because of this anonymity, there is no way to verify if all of the complaints are truly from NPS affiliated parents and students. Unfortunately, there are times when individuals like to create frenzy where there is none and they may try to send false reports to the media in an effort to see who will pick these stories up unwittingly. NPS remains vigilant in its efforts to provide a safe and clean learning environment for our students, staff and community. There are so many great things that could be covered in our school district and city, we hope that the media will do as we do and continue focusing on quality education for our children.
