handwashing


As a member of the medical community, I understand the importance of washing my hands. I don't mean just putting them under the tap and getting them a little wet. I mean properly washing hands. Just imagine if your doctor just went to the bathroom, came out without washing his hands, and you were next in line. Maybe the patient before you had a special physical exam involved and now you are being touched with the same hands.

Now, let's apply that to every day life. How many of us actually wash our hands? How many people at your local fast food joint wash their hands? What about after using the most common place of all, the bathroom?

Wouldn't it be nice if we had a way to tell who did not wash up? Maybe start with having the sinks outside restrooms so we could watch people washing hands. Maybe have two way mirrors so we could watch? Wouldn't that be so much fun!

Do us all a favor, k? Wash your hands. You can't even imagine how many people get food poisoning or catch a cold just because someone they came into contact with didn't wash their hands. It's a very simple thing to do. I recommend learning how to correctly wash your hands the next chance you get.

Oh, and you should see how half assed many surgeons are when they scrub in.

I guess I have given you something to think about.

Until next time, don't do anything I wouldn't do!

you should see how many restaurant employees do not wash their hands. i'm not talking about after using the bathroom, every one seems to be very good at washing after using the bathroom... however not everyone washes their hands after dumping dirty dishes off in the dish washing area. ewww- you just touched something dirty that a stranger ate off of and then handled a drinking glass.

i'm a waitress- my other favorite is when it's "Cold season" and a sick customer tries to hand you their dirty snot rag... as in "deposit it into your hand" for you to despose of. these are usually the same people who are worried about you handling their silverwear and want boiling water to soak their silverwear in... but they think nothing of you handling their drinking glass. strange.

The worst place to get sick - a hospital of course. I wash my hands more than I could count each day (medical field also) but part of me remembers that as a child the only time we ever washed our hands ws prior to eating. May be challenging our immune system as kids gives us more protection as adults. After all kids live by the 5 second rule.
