Hand Washing is Alive and Well in Holden Women's Hospital

I was at a birth a while back and was struck by the proliferation of hand-washing signs. The door to each patient's room had an 8.5x11 image of a faucet and bubbles. In the hallway restroom I counted 3 reminders, each a coloring page completed by a child and laminated AND a more professional sign encouraging visitors to wash hands.

Of course this is a good thing. I'm always happy to comply and appreciate the reminder. I didn't pay attention to whether nurses and doctors were following their institution's advice.


The birth stories continue to trickle in. Thanks all. It is very touching to read them.
