More on clothing and infection control
Today's Cleveland Plain Dealer has an article on public reaction to a photo that recently appeared in the paper. The photo showed two women in scrubs and hair covers at a farmers market. I suspect that a few years ago the photo would have attracted little attention, but some readers were concerned that produce could become contaminated by hospital pathogens and others were concerned about carriage of organisms into the hospital. Both are low probability events, but the importance of this article is the public's awareness of hospital acquired infections.
