Handwashing 101

While at work yesterday I received a memo from my supervisor. Apparently the lovely folks at JCAHO believe that we are all incompetent, uneducated folks in the area of handwashing. As a result, each employee must demonstrate the appropriate steps in handwashing. Each employee's supervisor will "poll" a percentage of their employees each month. The memo included the steps to handwashing and the suggestion to sing "Happy Birthday" while washing my hands to ensure I spend 20 seconds scrubbing them.

I sure hope this does not prevent me from that annual bonus...the one that pays for Jacob's birthday and Christmas presents! I sure don't want to have to tell him that I could not buy him birthday or Christmas gifts because Momma was not able to correctly demonstrate her handwashing skills.

You better believe I am studying up! At the very least I will be able to sing "Happy Birthday" to Jacob!

Are you serious?? A handwashing test??!!What an insult to intelligence. I have to laugh, too, when I'm in a public restroom and there is a poster with illustrations on how to wash one's hands. I just don't get it.
