Doctors’ ties harbour germ cities

Written by admin on February 4, 2011. Posted in Hygiene Safety

Ponder this, how often would you imagine a man sends his ties out for dry cleaning?…….hmmm. Now watch as it hovers over you or your baby as he leans in to check you over. How many other patients has he leaned over since that little piece of polyester or silk last saw the inside of a laundromat? More likely it’s been with him through many lunch and dinners, bathroom visits, request for patients to cough, habitual stroking as you see many men do, and then rolled up in an office drawer somewhere day after day collecting various particles over many months or even years.  So if you feel shy about asking, take a lonnnnng look at that tie and picture the life it may have lead. You should feel completely at ease asking him to tuck it into his shirt…and then wash his hands.
