Or its a sign that the ‘norm’, of washing your hands between seeing patients and not gloving up doesn’t work.

Hospitals are normally hotbeds of viruses and microbes.
Now add something highly infectious and contagious and what do you get?

Most hospital workers including doctors are worse than cops when it comes to touching things. I have watched er personnel put their bare hands on things I double gloved and wore a mask to just be around.

Famous words spoken in one er:
No I am not uncuffing him, no I ain’t touching that, I know what he has just like you do.
