Hand washing vs hand sanitizer? Which is better when done performing blood draws! would hand sanitizer prevent me from getting infected?

Hand washing vs hand sanitizer? Which is better when done performing blood draws! would hand sanitizer prevent me from getting infected?

Both work.: It's my understanding that hand washing and hand sanitizer are both good; certainly they are far better than not washing hands. If you are drawing blood, wear gloves. Don't re-cap needles, because you really can get stuck. If you should have a needle stick injury where you are in contact with a patient's blood, call your supervisor, the nursing supervisor, or the employee health department. ...Read more

Can you contract anything (diseases, viruses, etc.) by touching someone's hand? I used hand sanitizer and washed hands shortly after contact.

Can you contract anything (diseases, viruses, etc.) by touching someone's hand? I used hand sanitizer and washed hands shortly after contact.

Very unlikely: Shaking hands is a standard means of human greeting. It is done millions of times per day and our natural body defenses render it very unlikely that anything will be contacted that way. Hand sanitizers are useful to lower the spread of infectious illness, but most are not infected. Do not worry about this common practice of greeting your fellow human beings. ...Read more

From canada my bf used 2 kleenez not bare hands to pick up dead baby bird and dispose.Than carried in groceries without washing hands. Contamination?

Germs are everywher: Germs are everywhere, I would not expect that the two of you were going to eat off of those grocery bags. With food preparation and refrigeration your bacterial burden is usually reduced significantly. I wouldn't be any more concerned about this ,that if you went outside and played in the yard and came in and ate dinner without washing your hands. The normal human body has a great immune system. ...Read more

My colleague uses a lot of hand sanitizer to clean her tables. Can the alcohol evaporated from the sanitizer damage the eyes and respiratory system?

My colleague uses a lot of hand sanitizer to clean her tables. Can the alcohol evaporated from the sanitizer damage the eyes and respiratory system?

Unlikely an issue: Direct contact of the sanitizer with the delicate surface of the eye would be harmful. However, the dissipation of the alcohol vapor as it evaporates from the cleaned surfaces has such a low concentration that harm to the eyes or lungs would be unlikely. Using such products in open spaces is less worrisome than those that are confined and poorly ventilated . ...Read more

What're the ways to retrieve back power from stroke paralysed hand?

What're the ways to retrieve back power from stroke paralysed hand?

Therapy: Total paralysis post stroke usually does not recover. But if you have some function, then a program of occupational therapy, often supplemented by specific splints, may be quite helpful. One form of treatment consists of restraining the non-paralyzed hand, so that the patient won't be tempted to use the unaffected hand instead (this treatment can provide very good results). See a pm&r doctor. ...Read more

I have a pulling pain between the thumb knuckle and the wrist when opening safety gates, jars etc working hand movements ?

Inflammation: It sounds like inflammation of the tendon...did you injure it in some way? Have it seen by your doctor if it persists. In the meantime there are some simple things that may help. Homeopathic Arnica, Rhus tox and Bryonia (all three at same time) can help with the pain. Stopping gluten can also help...over time..that is not a quick fix. I have great success with Traditional Chinese medicine as well ...Read more

Do you consider a person who has paralyzed their dominant arm from the shoulder down to the hand to be disabled?

Do you consider a person who has paralyzed their dominant arm from the shoulder down to the hand to be disabled?

Yes, no, maybe: "Disabled" has many different meanings, depending on exactly what the question is asking about. There are no perfect humans, which means everyone has some sort of disability or handicap. Of course, we can't call everyone disabled or else the word would become meaningless. Losing use of an arm is a huge handicap but whether or not "the person is disabled" depends on the question's specific details. ...Read more
