No doubt, you’ve heard about hospital infections. Patients can pick up a “superbug” that lurks on every hospital surface. The #1 way to prevent a hospital staph infection is hand-washing, yet soap dispensers are usually hung on a wall — far out of reach for patients!
So… bring on the Purell! (Or any other brand you trust.) When patients have their own soap on hand, their hands will be safer. And, if a doctor, nurse or anyone else forgets to wash before touching them, a personal stash of Purell will be at their fingertips to share.
Don’t forget to bring The Care Partner Project’s checklists to prevent infections, too!
