This diary will be an ongoing project to harness ideas to create or buy the most effective hand washing signs. I will be voting and surveying to see what the most popular hygiene signs exist in the world. If you have some examples, please submit them! I will be continually updating this infection control diary - so check back!

Hand Hygiene Sign in a Burger Restaurant... It says employees "& Scott." I'm guessing Scott may have a problem that someone wants him to know about!
Our abstract has been accepted and we plan to attend and present at the 17th World Congress on Disaster and Emergency Medicine (May 2011 Beijing, China). Here is the our abstract for the WCDEM:
Risk Management in Emergency Situations; Does Germ Simulation Improve the Level of Care?
Simulation is a major part of the training process for emergency medical professionals. The scenery, sounds, smells, situations, and so forth have all been replicated for the benefit of the student. These simulation factors prepare the student to react according to the trainings they received in a controlled environment, but what about germ simulation? The premise of our research is to determine if the outcome of treatment changes when germ simulation is added as a factor.
The majority of emergency medical simulations do not factor germs into the situation and potentially leave the emergency responders exposed which causes liability, complications, side effects, etc. Generally, the current standards for care and certification include lessons on blood borne pathogens, disease prevention, personal protective equipment and so forth, but there is still a shortcoming between the classroom lessons and a real situation.
Our research helps answer the following questions: What is the simulation method that can best replicate a real situation? How much potential disease exposure can an emergency medical responder expect? Does the level of treatment increase with the introduction of a germ simulation? What behavior changes occur when germs become a main factor in a simulation?
The goal of our research and presentation is to find out if the amount of risk can be reduced with more comprehensive simulations. Ultimately, we strive to diminish the risk of disease and illness spreading among responders and at the same time increase the level of care among disaster victims.
