There is concern Monday about just how clean an Indianapolis children’s hospital is and how safe it is for its patients.

Fox59 received photos from a man who said he and his wife have been at Riley Hospital at IU Health for the last six weeks.

The man wrote in an email that the family was at the hospital with their newborn daughter and having problems with bed bugs. In the email, he claimed the bed bugs have been a problem in their room for more than two weeks.

The family said that hospital staff recently moved them to a new room, took their clothes and shoes, and gave them a gift card to Target. The family also says they are not from their area and have no other clothes or shoes with them.

IU Health released the following statement:

"Bed bugs continue to be an issue nationwide. At Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, an incidence of bed bugs was recently discovered. To ensure the safety of our patients and families, we work closely with our infection control and environmental services departments to ensure the incident is isolated and dealt with in a timely manner."
