Cardboard nurses to beat infections in British hospitals
Two British hospitals have introduced "talking" cardboard nurses to their reception areas as part of a project to battle infection. The life-size nurses have been placed at the front entrances of both hospitals to remind people of the importance of cleaning their hands before they enter the hospitals. The "nurses" work via an electronic motion sensor which is activated as people walk past, triggering a recorded message.
