My hands are absolutely SORE ! I was showing a co-worker my hands and asked her , "What do you think is causing these little tiny cuts on my fingers? and Hands??"
She said it is because my hands are so dry. The soap dispenser at work is very harsh.
Anyone carrying around a soap squirter from Home?
I must wash my hands 40 times in 8 hours...maybe more.
What kind of hand cream are you all using?
Anyone else got this problem?
My hands hurt/sting/burn////
I think I might start wearing gloves 4-5 hours out of eight.
I see lots of nurses who walk into EVERY patients room putting on a pair of gloves. They never take them off.
Until they leave the room. And they do not wash their hands.
They return to the desk or med room and do whatever chore it is they were doing and put on another pair of gloves when in the pts. room the next time.
Maybe this is best. Especially for me. Handwashing would be a hard habit to break. But I know I am at risk with all these broken area s on my hands.
What do you all do?
And which lotion/cream is best to buy?
