What Not to Wear in Healthcare 


We can thank the Coronavirus for making us rethink our hygiene and environment a little more than usual.  Have you given thought to how many germs are living in your department’s protective aprons and devices?  As a QM technologist for many years, I can tell you that if I didn’t clean the aprons, no one did.  Who is cleaning aprons and how often?  We decided to do a study of our customer base of technologists across the nation to see just who, what, when and how these devices get cleaned.


The Idiot's Guide to Coronavirus From an Emergency Physician

What Not to Wear in Healthcare 


1. Take it easy. The worst part of all this is the fear. More people die from the flu, car accidents, or guns. As of Saturday, March 7th, 19 Americans had died from COVID-19, compared to 1,177 every week from the flu, 746 from car crashes, and 294 from gunshots.

2. Wash your hands like your life depends on it. Because it does. Not only for Corona, but for the many germs you’ll acquire from touching elevator buttons, doorknobs, or somebody else’s hand. Or the dirtiest thing on earth: money: Everybody handles it, and nobody washes it. Except for the mob. And me, when I forget it in my pockets.
