Infections from Doctors

Infections can be transmitted from doctors and nurses to patients. It is well known. Hospitals across the world are trying to convince medical staff to clean their hands – wash with soap and water or use rubbing alcohol.

The other common things which are sources of infections are doctors’ white coats (which are not washed very often), neck ties (never washed), stethoscopes (hardly ever cleaned), telephones, and the list goes on.

Think about it.
