How the Right Words Can Deliver a 6-Figure Payoff



The medical community has understood for 164 years the importance of hand washing as a means of reducing infection. Yet rates of compliance among healthcare providers are abysmal. But a recent study shows that a certain type of signage can spur a dramatic improvement.

perhaps a more graphic posting would help as well. I've worked in hospitals for most of my career, & therefore, attended universal precautions lectures on many occasions. I've seen the signs, heard the lectures, but no one has said "the rest of the story". When you do not wash your hands after using the toilet, when you go to eat, return to the restroom, go to the toilet & eat/drink your fill. & if that isn't disgusting enough... If you eat/drink, shake hands/touch anyone who hasn't washed their hands after using the toilet, &/or touched something they have then you might as well join them because you are ingesting/handling the things no one's body will handle. That's why it is waste. I hope this brings home just what the effects are of not washing your hands after your body rids itself of offal. Frankly, I don't want to eat my own offal, never mind your's! WASH YOUR HANDS, FOLKS. PLEASE!
