NOROVIRUS!!! I truly hate this virus with all of my heart!! Hate is a strong word, but I really do! Annnnnd who in the hell would love any virus ♀️!! As an infection Control Practitioner I have witnessed it all!!! If you have ever watched the movie contagion, please go and watch it right now. That movie will show you how infections and viruses spread so easily amongst people! I witnessed 96 individuals acquire Norovirus in just 30 days at one facility. Half were staff members and the other half were patients. How do you acquire NOROVIRUS ? Simple, by ingesting poop ! It’s that simple. Ponder on that.
If you could see bacteria and viruses growing with the naked eye we would wash our hands more frequently! The truth is everything is contaminated until cleaned. It’s important to wash our hands!! People perish due to lack of knowledge and even more so for not washing their hands . Love showing this chart! Epidemiologically significant organisms can live on surfaces for such a long time and trust me if you touch a contaminated surface and then go to lunch, you will become one with that microorganism!! #FACT#INFECTIONKILLS#DONTSPREADIT

Unfortunately making a few mistakes is just part of the learning process. Don't beat yourself up. Learn from it. You should view it as an educational opportunity. What could you have done differently? Oh yeah, since we're here let me clear the air. Nobody's perfect. EVERYONE in your Department has made a mistake or two or three. Trust me on that.The important thing is learning from it. Ask questions and get comfortable with the information, retain that information. The best way to do that is practice. Repetition is the key. .

This is a difficult concept for top performers but it's necessary. If you keep plugging all the holes within your Department how can your manager accurately assess the true needs of your Department.
Trying to make up for all the issues delay proper solutions to the issues. Also it leads to burnouts when real problems are left to fester and staff has to jump some pretty high hurdles to get through their daily duties. IJS
This is my good friend from Germany, Christian Wolf, Owner of @Hawo Sealer. Finally After months of connecting online we were able to catch up and talk in person. Christian THANKS for your generosity i appreciate it very much.
