Contrary to popular belief, the most common way germs are transferred from one person to another is not through the air, but through our hands. When someone is sick and he or she touches his or her mouth or nose, germs transfer to the fingers. If you shake hands, touch money, a pen, a door knob, those germs can transfer to you. And then all you have to do is touch your own nose, mouth or eye to start the cycle of sickness.
Washing your hands more frequently with soap and water, or using an anti-bacterial product like Purell will help sanitize your hands and protect you from illness. That’s why in our waiting room, you will find plenty of anti-bacterial dispensers. We also clean our facility with grain alcohol throughout the day to keep surfaces sparkling so whenever you arrive you can feel comfortable and won’t have to worry about the germs.
