Just a very short piece here to remind all practice owners that a very simple and thoughtful step toward protecting your patients and protecting yourself against germs is to have hand sanitizer readily accessible to patients (and staff) throughout your practice.
H1N1, or “Swine Flu” is on just about every television channel and every news broadcast, so your patients are really thinking about germs right now. Anytime you have everyone focused in the same direction on a topic like this, it becomes much easier to be relevant and current with your clientele by responding responsibly. Your patients will likely appreciate your thoughtfulness in offering the simple option of keeping their hands clean as they are in your presence, and you might just kill a germ or two.
Oh, and racking your brain over your next promotional giveaway at an upcoming event? You guessed it – give people something they will actually use – small, travel hand sanitizers with your logo proudly displayed on the bottle.
