(thoughts and statistics on why I probably won’t touch your cell phone)
We’re all taught from a young age (or so I hope) to wash our hands to remove the harmful bacteria that can make us sick. Signs line the bathroom walls in the restaurants we bring our families, reminding the individuals that handle our food to wash their hands. Us moms carry hand sanitizer as we carte our sweet little germ balls to school and ballet. We wash our dishes and wipe our counters clean and maintain proper hygiene all in an attempt to keep healthy and prevent the spread of germs and disease.
You are sick. Probably sicker than you have ever been. Now you are being told that you are going to have Picc line inserted. It’s going to be there for a matter of weeks and you are responsible for some of the care and maintenance of this medical device. What now?
