INTRODUCTION Proper handwashing can reduce diarrhea by 40%. Touching the face with contaminated hands can spread illnesses and diseases like pneumonia, cold and the flu.(CDC,2016) I have some personal reasons why I chose handwashing or hand hygiene. Some years back I went to a local primary provider to get an incision and drainage for a boil. The doctor and his attendee that assisted me didn’t wash their hands from the previous patient, and my boil became infected. The purpose of this paper is to explain just how important it is to wash your hands. Also, to inform when it is ok to use soap and water and when to use sanitizer. The words or phrases I used to get the research were handwashing, hand hygiene, soap or sanitizer, steps to handwashing, why and how to wash hands, consequences of poor hygiene, hand hygiene education, and how to prevent the spread of germs(.CDC,2016) Article 1/Journal of material research Title: Back to the Basics of infection control

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
