Should nurses always be 'bare below the elbows'?


As long as hospitals and health services insist upon keeping such cold temperatures, I will have to wear long sleeves. I pity my patients who feel my cold hands some days. There is no proof cold temperatures reduce infection. In fact, it is poor service for our patients to feel chilled. We'd be helping the budget as a bonus.
