I am a total germaphobe! I use bleach wipes to wipe the computer prior to use. I wash my hands then use the sanitizer for my hands and glove up to every patients I see, even when they ask me to hand them water. I use alcohol wipes to clean my stethoscope with each patient use. Before leaving work, I wash my hands two times then put on gloves, use bleach wipes to wipe my shoes and clipboard. I practically use a whole box of alcohol wipes at the end of my shift. Then when I get to my car, I slip out of my shoes ( wearing gloves) put it in the trunk and put on another pair, then use sanitizer again. When I get home, I take off my scrubs in the laundry basket for scrubs only in the laundry room. Then take a really hot shower. I had nurses looking at me like I am crazy, but I don't care! Don't want to bring anything home or catch anything myself.
I used to take off my scrubs in the parking garage before getting in the car to put it in the trunk (I always have undershirts and shorts underneath my scrubs) but stopped because I see people literally stop and watch me every time, I guess they thought I was stripping naked for all to see.
