Is That Lifestyle Even Healthy? Sometimes I wonder how people can think that it is even healthy to be a slob. There are several different types of people in this world but when it comes to slobs some people can have low tolerance for it. When you work in the medical field you are supposed to be in an environment that is sterile and clean all around you. When you throw a slop into the mix of that, it definitely throws off the whole purpose of trying to be sterile or clean. A slob in my terms is someone who is lazy, doesn’t pick up after themselves, and is good for nothing but laying around not doing anything to better themselves. Slobs could easily fix how they do things but if someone doesn’t want to change, they are not going to change! Working with a slob has got to be one of the most annoying things that I have ever had to deal with. You never expect to pull the slack of someone else while you are already trying to pull your own weight in the office. There is so many different things that you have to remember while working in the medical field and being clean is one of them. After every patient you have to clean the rooms and when you see thirty-five to forty patients in one
Not only do they not care about what everything around them looks like, they don’t care about what they look like. Regardless to signing an employee handbook that specifically states that we have to keep up on our self-hygiene, and come to work looking nice, we still have that one co-worker that comes to work looking like they just rolled out of bed. Granted it would be a different story if it were an every once in a while type of thing. Then again when it is an everyday thing, it should be talked about with the employee. I don’t believe that low self-hygiene should be taken lightly, especially when it comes to working in surgery and in an office that is supposed to be high in

The World Health Organization (WHO, 2009), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, 2002), and The Joint Commission (2009) recommend methods for monitoring performance and providing feedback to HCWs. Despite continuous efforts by managers to improve training and supervision, HCWs miss several opportunities to wash or sanitize their hands before touching patients or touching the patient care environment. Studies have shown that HH compliance among HCWs in the United States is at or below 50% (McGuckin, Waterman, & Govednik, 2009). Managers are compelled to improve their teams ' performance. (Mcguckin & Govednik, 2015, p.
The Blobfish’s scientific name is the Psychrolutes P. Marcidus (Si - chro - lus P. Mar - si - dus ) , but I like to call blobfish just blob. The Psychrolutes P. Marcidus can grow up to 12in (30.5cm) long and live about 130 years. They are endangered and there are only about 420 left in the world. They live off the coast of Australia , living in deep - high pressure waters, in around 2,000 - 4,000 feet under the waves. Blobfish are invertebrate with no muscle and are blob-like so underwater they can survive under the high pressure water. If you were under all the water pressure down there, the blobfish would look like real fish.
“Guidelines for Infection Control” inform us that Dental Assistants should clean floors regularly as well as spills to minimize contamination in the office. Every cubicle in the office should have water and detergent at all times to clean after every use. The entire operatory must be adequately sprayed with CaviCide and wiped with CaviWipes or similar brands. According to CDC, Dental Assistants must also wipe under barriers, and patient chairs should be wiped from head to toe regardless of how expensive the leather is. By the end of the day Dental Assistants are to run suction cleaner or replace if necessary the operatory and saliva ejector tubing’s. It is important as a Dental Assistant to observe any types of dirtiness throughout the dental clinic to help and maintain a healthy and clean
On July 2, 1962, the first Wal-Mart store opened in Arkansas, and over the next 50 years, Wal-Mart became a retail giant. Holding the title of the world’s largest employer, only comparable to the United States Department of Defense and Chinas Army, Wal-Mart employs over 2.1 million people. Sam Walton’s philosophy was low prices. Instead of offering good sales every once in a while, Walton offered an “always lower price” than competitors on things that ordinary people use every day. This philosophy continues to attract more than 140 million shoppers per week. This staggering amount of shoppers helped produce a revenue of $443billion for fiscal year 2012 alone (Matthews, 2012). With more than 6,000 stores in 14 countries, Wal-Mart produces remarkable revenue each year (Hesterly, 2010). With literally billions pouring into the company, one must assess how the money is controlled and if its accounted for by the best contemporary management techniques on the market. While Wal-Mart thrives on the use of benchmarketing and lean accounting, the Theory of Constraints paired with lean accounting could produce staggering results for Wal-Mart in terms of financial management.
This literature review will analyze and critically explore four studies that have been conducted on hand hygiene compliance rates by Healthcare workers (HCWs). Firstly, it will look at compliance rates for HCWs in the intensive care units (ICU) and then explore the different factors that contribute to low hand hygiene compliance. Hospital Acquired infections (HAI) or Nosocomial Infections appear worldwide, affecting both developed and poor countries. HAIs represent a major source of morbidity and mortality, especially for patients in the ICU (Hugonnet, Perneger, & Pittet, 2002). Hand hygiene can be defined as any method that destroys or removes microorganisms on hands (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2009). According to the World Health Organization (2002), a HAI can be defined as an infection occurring in a patient in a hospital or other health care facility in whom the infection was not present or incubating at the time of admission. The hands of HCWs transmit majority of the endemic infections. As
Observation of mealtime hand hygiene behaviors occurred during the facility’s meal times, which the assistant administrator emailed to the researcher (7:00, 11:30, and 4:30). One cycle began on different days of the week (Thursday, Wednesday, and Saturday) to determine the adherence to mealtime hand hygiene behaviors under various conditions. All participants received disposable wipes per the facility’s current practice. The researcher observed mealtime hand hygiene behaviors throughout the meal. The researcher began observing as participants entered the dining hall and ended when the participant removed the clothing protector and left the table. Behavior prior to the beginning of the meal was observed but not recorded. If the wipe was placed on table for resident, it was recorded as a visual cue and if it was handed to the resident it was recorded as a nonverbal cue. Verbal cues from healthcare workers were recorded on the Flowsheet for Hand Hygiene Observation (Appendix K). Former participants were observed performing mealtime hand hygiene behaviors during subsequent cycles, but this data was not recorded.
William Golding was born on September 19,1911 in St Columb Minor, England. His mom fought for equal rights for women and his dad was a school master. William Golding tried to write his first book when he was just twelve years old, but he failed. That did not stop him and went on to attend Oxford University and studied English literature. William Golding even published a book a year before he was to graduate, but of course was looked over by many critics. He became a teacher like his father, but then decided to join the Royal Navy and spent six years fighting in World War II. He went back to writing and teaching after World War II ended and nine years later he published his most famous piece of work, Lord of the Flies.
Some common barriers to healthcare workers can be cost, access to hand sanitation stations or materials and lack of knowledge of current best care practices. Lack of proper hand hygiene increases the likely hood of a healthcare acquired infection. Cost to the hospital and the patient increases with longer hospital stays and more treatment required. Current practices should not be changed but education in the reasoning of these practices needs to be increased in the healthcare community.
Many people have different feelings about cleaning. I need my area to be clean to be able to focus, so I like to clean unless I am told to clean. Cleaning makes me feel peaceful and keeps my head on straight and helps me feel more in charge. Some people don’t like to clean and that is alright. When it comes to cleaning, it’s really about whatever makes the person feel good; but every adult needs to be able to clean up after himself or herself and those he or she provides for.
Personal hygiene is an important part of all our lives. It’s good for feeling good, comfortable and clean. Good personal hygiene means the reduction of body odour which can be unpleasant for the individual and others. This can also mean that the individual is socially excluded due to body odours. This also extends to regular cleaning of your teeth, which if not regularly done, will lead to bad breath, gum disease and eventually health problems with your teeth. Personal hygiene also makes you have feelings of self-worth and can make you feel valued.
One year ago I realized that drinking and driving is very dangerous. My cousin Janet had everything that anyone will ever ask for in life, a car, a job, a boyfriend that loved her more than anything else in the whole world, a son and a promising future. All that changed when she decided to drive home from a party after drinking. She fall asleep at the wheel, crashed her car very bad into a ditch. Janet was my role model who I looked up in many ways, she always inspired by how hard she worked, but all that changed in one day. For nearly two months she remained in coma and now she is spending several time in rehabilitation to help he learn basic motor functions such as talking, walking and swallowing . For the rest of her life she will likely suffer from memory loss, dangerous seizures and even impaired speech.
In the workplace details matter, especially the small details. Example; I work in the medical field and after every patient I have to sanitize the chairs and make sure nothing has been left behind from that previous patient. At times, the office can get pretty busy and I can forget the smallest detail in the room, like missing the trash can and leaving gloves on the floor next to it. If a customer sees that, they will automatically think we are not clean.
All soldiers are taught to maintain their personal hygiene; they are often clean, uniformed and organized? Placing everything where it should be in order to retrieve them when needed. Not only is the soldier taught to maintain good hygiene, he is taught to keep his weapon and all equipment clean and operable. The solider hygiene and operable weapon is the key to survival in the field, and often he would maintain this attitude even when leaving the military, and the habit is carried on to our wives and children, or we may perceives people in our family to take on the same attributes. But we must remember we are only soldiers, soldiers forever realizing that our spouses and children will never be the same
Some personal hygiene activities are cleaning private areas, bathing, brushing teeth, going to the bathroom, washing clothes, and cleaning nails. Security, quality, and comfort are implemented with personal hygiene. For example, cleaning and elder female requires skills and experience with the peri area after going to the bathroom due to the female body shape. Poor personal hygiene can lead to other disease process like UTI (Urinary tract infection). Also, personal hygiene in “Dignity of Care” supports the individual’s lifestyle from the considerations of what the individual wants based on a appropriate standards of quality care. In addition, benchmarks are used to identify the individual's choices of lifestyle in environmental, hygiene, appearance, and cultural. A appropriate standard of good practice with personal hygiene is to promote effectiveness and independence of an individual lifestyle. For example, an individual does not like nail polish on their nails. Therefore, it is disrespect to paint an individual’s nails. It is against her wish and can create distrust effecting communication
Some people pick up on it rather quick, whether it be because someone has told them they’re disgusting, or they see it through their own eyes. Then there are those people that will never notice their filth, and unfortunately not everyone learns to clean up after themselves. Living on campus at Spartanburg Methodist with three other girls my age has made me realize that not everyone was taught to clean up after themselves the way my mother taught me. The first incident that led me to this conclusion was on a weeknight, after a long hard day of workouts, class, and practice I was sitting in the bathroom, I look down to my right—there was no toilet paper. What kind of person doesn’t put toilet paper back on the roll after they use it all?! As if being stranded in the bathroom wasn’t enough I walked out into the living room and a stench of onion almost knocks me down. I look around and someone left their sub wrapper on the living room table. When confronted about leaving a mess in the room each person claimed to understand how it’s not acceptable to leave their stuff thrown throughout the dorm, yet it continued to happen. As I have grown up I now realize that every time my mother would yell at me for leaving food out, not changing the toilet paper roll, leaving a wet towel on my bed, etc., she was preparing me for life on my own. My mother was teaching me how to pick up after myself because one day she wouldn’t be there to wash my laundry or tell me what time to go to bed. All the times that I thought my mom was the bossiest mom in the world and a nag, I was wrong, she was teaching me responsibility at a young
