I’m all in favor of washing my hands …. do it countless times every day, but is anyone else having the hand washing nazis making your life miserable? We’ve all taken at least one hand washing class, we have been coached, signs up to remind us, several emails, etc, and now they want to give handouts to all of the patients and have them ask us every time we go into a room if we did, in fact, wash our hands.
my last job was wash hands put on gloves, dip urine, take off gloves, wash hands, sign a few consents, wash hands put gloves on and to do a head to toe assessment takes gloves back off and wash hands again. This was SOP. My hands were so raw and hurt so bad I thought I would cry at time. BUT yes I wash my hands!!
