Back Home Up Next



Bad medicine can be neglect of basic medicine.  Here's a checklist for anyone who goes into Intensive Care:
“Doctors are supposed to:
1) wash their hands with soap, 
2) clean the patient’s skin with chlorhexidine antiseptic 
3) put sterile drapes over the entire patient, 
4) wear a sterile mask, hat, gown and gloves and 
5) put a sterile dressing over the catheter site once the line is in.”
