I am proud of the fact that I have stayed employed by the same place for over 16 years.

I totally agree Blues, & scrubbing up before surgery is probably the ultimate hand wash.

One thing that I have noticed changing over the years is a reluctance to touch a patient without gloves, however the hands should also be washed, before & after contact.

I think it is sad that colleagues are reluctant to offer the natural comfort & perhaps dignity of touuching skin to skin. If hands are clean & without cuts or skin breaks the risk to patient or worker are minimal.

Yesterday I was in obstetrics & I felt really sad to see the midwives & paediatrician (baby neede some post delivery care but ok now), stroking the little one with gloves on! i don't believe the non sterile gloves offered any protection to either staff or babe so why use them? :? :?

oops! i missed the Reality Check! --- snicker -- well 5 hours from the ocean aint so bad, but FEELing like a sea otter is always better, even if i cant meet up with sea-lions, dolphins and whales... especially since the temperatures here have dropped just out of the 30C range this week and plumetted to 20-22C, but I can still get some swim time in at the lake rather than in the hypothermia-inducing pacific ocean :-) ahhhhh the beach and a nice muscle-relaxing swim...

proud to live is a society that even if 90% of the population thinks you are wrong, you still have the right to peaceful protest

Proud to have fielded sixty years of ideological sh*t and come through relatively unscathed and only slightly compromised.

LOL. Thanks mogster. A little late, but this birthday has already been going on several weeks. Sixty was never in my game plan so it's taking a little getting used to. :)

I was just reading up on Mick Jagger. He's 68 and probably more active than most people half his age. He runs,swims, works out at the gym, does yoga, karate,this and that. Unbelievable. So 60 is still young. Right?
