Traffic light-style campaign aims to halt germs at English hospital

Halifax Evening Courier, June 23, 2008

Hand sanitizer gel dispensers that look like traffic lights, have been introduced as part of the "Stop, Gel & Go!" program, which was developed after an outbreak of a "superbug" in May forced several wards of the hospital to close.
