Tie ban imposed on hospital staff in the U.K.
BBC News, March 13, 2008
A British hospital is banning neck ties and encouraging its employees to leave the long sleeve shirts at home in an effort to curb MRSA. Doctors seem to be taking the new rules well. One doctor was quoted as saying, "If you look at the state of many doctors' ties, they probably need a wash, so it should reduce infections."
