Speaking of good cough etiquette/sanitation- here's a great little video. I
first saw it at a local School District meeting. Actually entertaining!

My kids haven't been asked to carry concealed yet.  They used to get an extra
credit point for bringing a box of tissues to class, but the school
disallowed that practice this year because they felt it might be unfair to
those who could not afford to supply the school with tissues.  So, the kids
are packing their own or using the back of the hand, wall, desk or whatever
is handy.  Management at our state agency (and probably all of them in MN)
issued each desk a 4 oz bottle (apparently this equals about 8 martinis) and
a container of wipes.  I've heard they will be installing dispensers outside
all of our conference rooms, just like hospitals.  A nurse friend of mine
said they had to switch to another type of sanitizer at her hospital because
too many employees (they like to blame the janitors) were adding a shot to
their morning coffee. It fits right in with all the other craziness...must be
something in the water...

I refer to them as little bombs in the hospital.  In an age where fire
marshals freak out over recycling containers size due to fire risk....its
okay to put aerosol containers (otherwise known as compressed gas cylinders)
of flammable materials every twenty feet or so along a wall?..  gee I feel
safe now.  Whatever happened to soap and water and proper technique?  is that
too complicated?  This is what happens when rampant uneducated fear trumps
science and logic.

 

I clearly remember the day, sitting in the Reno airport bar and Wolf Blitzer
comes on TV with a special report about deadly MRSA...all I could think about
was how this would put a halt to all other hospital projects to solve a
problem that really wasn't a problem, because guess what MRSA is already
everywhere and that just employing proper hand washing would do just
fine....sigghhhh, I must be getting older ;-)

	I read an article where a child was poisoned by alcohol sanitizer
	recently.  Its only a matter of time before a child dies, or they
start
	getting the swift idea of lighting it.  My own step-son was required
by
	the school to bring a bottle to begin the year.  This is a clear
example
	of bringing an item to market, and not enough controls.  Everyone
thinks
	sanitizer is so great.  
	
	Anyone else being requested to bring it to school?
