I've recently been made extremely aware of a very important issue when visiting a hospital or care facility...or providing care at home. I think everyone should be aware of some simple things you can do to prevent illness. We have the resources. For more information on Health care Associated Infection, take a few minutes to watch this helpful video. It could save your life, or the life of someone you love. We all hear it, but how often do we really do it? I've been in the hospital several times this week. Once while visiting my newborn niece. A son with strep throat had me in a couple places. I'm always looking for those hand sanitizing pumps. Almost every chance I get, I'm sanitizing. I may seem like a germ freak to some, but on the other hand...you can never be too careful in these situations. Ha! Now I feel totally vindicated!
