Do you remember when you were little (and maybe older, too tongue ) when your Mom said, "Did you wash your hands?"  Well, Mom was right on again! yeah
 
With new 'super bugs' showing up in hospitals and some bacterial diseases become resistant to antibiotics, it's so important today to focus and to be aware of cleanliness.

"A global initiative to stop hospital errors will focus on the old dictum "first, do no harm" by encouraging health care workers to clean up their acts, health officials said on Tuesday.

They said hospital employees all over the world should heed the advice attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, and the best way to do that is improve hygiene habits.

Several studies have shown that doctors, nurses and other health care workers routinely fail to wash their hands and disinfect equipment." http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_26482.html

Anyone who has any heart disease, especially Heart Failure or Cardiomyopathy needs to make sure that they try to stay away from as many germs as possible so as not to put any more stress on the heart.  So hand washing is a must as germs travel very quickly during brief interludes such as a hand shake! yeah
