Ask our Registered Nurse, Lauren Jones:
Q: Help! Everyone around me is sick, how can I help myself stay healthy this Holiday Season?
A: Wash your hands and stay F.R.E.S.H.
WASH YOUR HANDS! One of the first lessons learned as an RN was proper hand washing technique. It seems basic, but so many people get it wrong and proper handwashing is one of the best first-line defenses against getting sick and spreading illness. 20 seconds (sing happy birthday to yourself twice) with warm water and soap, being sure to scrub palms, back of hands, in-between fingers, under fingernails, and pay attention to your cuticles and thumbs (some of the most commonly neglected areas).
