'Holographic nurse' used to promote hand hygiene


as people get used to it they will probably walk past it without even noticing. what about having a campaign with kind, smiling, friendly and smart real live nurses at the entrance to hospitals welcoming visitors and handing out gel and a brief chat to visitors - and don't start bleating about staffing levels and money again! this argument is very fatigued and burnt out! the front entrance to our local hospital is a disgrace and not the epitome of good hygiene or efficiency. it has more the air of a souk with boutiques selling junk foods and drinks and scruffy clothes hanging around, and an equally scruffy cafe with paper cups lying around. tidying it up and having a few professional looking and friendly staff present would be refreshing, give a better impression that the hospital is serious about its job and set a good example of hygiene, cleanliness, efficiency to the public and help to restore their trust. we have now gone over the top with the virtual, sterile and totally impersonal.
