Perhaps it is my role as Safety Officer or Chair of the Environment of Care at my hospital, or the fact that I just finished the compelling book The Great Influenza. Anyway, I came across an article in the AARP Bulletin on dirty hospitals. It includes information on how we (patients) can avoid getting infected.
I truly believe hospitals, patients and physicians need to work together to reduce infections!
Oh, and you can thank my 93 year old mother-in-law for sharing her AARP bulletin with me!
