The month of May is the Handwashing Awareness Month and this year’s theme as per the CDC, “#SafeSurgicalHands.” As part of the health care team especially the surgical team, this is the most important step for us. And as they said, “Infection control is in your hands.” Especially in the operating room, I am most meticulous.I scrub my whole arms minimum of six minutes. I’d rather stay a bit longer in the lavatory just to ensure my hands are surgically clean. Obviously, no nurse have a soft hands. We have to rub our hands with soap and water plus the hand sanitizer hundred times each day. ^^
At the end of the day, we had a very delightful Emirati food given by our VIP patient.
We had Biryani, Harees and the other one that is made of vermicelli but it’s sweet. I wasn’t able to take a photo of that one. Boo. At first she was thinking of giving us only in our room but decided to give the whole department. It was very filling and everyone’s happy! Shukran!
