Being a stickler for hand washing, it still amazes me how far the extent in which washing your hands can eliminate common health problems. However, what really shocks me is that healthcare facilities themselves don’t always abide by this rule.
Our hands touch nearly everything in sight. By not washing them, we transfer whatever bacteria that is on our hands onto another surface. This is such an easy way for cross contamination. Not only can you get sick from this, but as a whole for a country, this means dollars going down the drain to treat diseases that are easily preventable in the first place.
So do yourself a favour, as well as your cheque book, and wash yours hands.
