PLEASE DON”T KILL ME WITH YOUR DIRTY HANDS!!! Imagine how many things you have touched from the time you left your home to the time you eat lunch. Now imagine not washing your hands throughout the day, but touching your face, mouth, or open wounds. Gross huh? Located all over University Community Hospital and other medical centers are sanitization devices available at your disposal. As a group we knew we wanted to place our sticker somewhere in the hospital. Why not a cafeteria? Doctors, nurses, patients, visitors, and other employees all pass through the cafeteria. If no one kept their hands clean then the doctors, nurses, employees, or patients could spread bacteria to the visitors and vice versa. Located in several parts of the hospital's cafeteria are sanitization devices. Since several people are in the cafeteria devouring food, preparing food, and serving food cleanliness is a must. However, going to the sink several times to wash your hands is inconvenient but more effective. Most sanitizers kill 99.9% of bacteria, and seeing that sanitizing hands is a preventive measure it is considered a primary method of prevention in public health.
Washing your hands can save your life and someone else life too. Especially in the hospital setting where patients are prone to staph infections illnesses, easy access to hand sanitizer provided by the hospital or self could help to minimize the spreading of bacteria and infections. Washing hands has become a social norm in today's society. Today you can now purchase at low prices cute and stylish hand sanitizer to carry with you at all times. If washing your hands lead to dry skin, there is hand sanitizer with moisturizers. Who doesn't love that! In many community areas hand sanitizer has become just as important as soap and water.
