Every morning before I have my clinicals, i always tell myself to make sure that i wash my hands EVERYTIME i do something with a patient. But it really is difficult to remember to do that.:imbar Today, we talked about infections and antibiotics in class, and i was pretty scared looking at in increase in statistical data for infection and antibiotic resistant organisms. Nosocomial infection rate is incredibly high, and as a nursing student, i am right there in the middle of the field. So, i am determined to carry my hand-washing duty even more diligently than before.
Well, hand washing will definitely help all of us to not carry organisms from one to the other. I was just wondering if everyone else, who are in nursing field, feel the same way as I do.
