Hand washing- How does it help, Does it help?
- If visiting anyone in a hospital, even the newborn nursery section, wash your hands, a lot! Everytime you enter a room, after shaking a hand, holding the baby, wash your hands.
- At home, handwashing is a really good idea if stomach flu is circulating, and not a bad thing to do to stay clean, but has little impact on the spread of respiratory infections like colds and regular flus.
