Every healthcare worker knows the importance of adequate hand hygiene. Unfortunately there are many nurses, doctors, and other healthcare workers who do not wash their hands as often or as long as is required to adequately protect patients from the potentially deadly viruses and bacteria that exist in hospitals everyday.
