Medical Safety: Triple A Films Provide Germ Protection on National Nurses Day, and All Other Days

If you watch PBS’ new medical miniseries, Mercy Street, you will see that the nurses and doctors of the Civil War era did not engage in hygienic practices or germ protection. The series chronicles two volunteer nurses from the north and south who work at the Mansion House Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia. The series shows that the cleanliness of the medical professionals in the Civil War era pales in comparison to modern day standards. Thankfully, things have changed drastically over the past century.

National Nurses Day

Modern day nurses are hyper-focused on personal hygiene and treating others in the most hygienic manner possible. Since 1994, their service has been celebrated during National Nurses Week from May 6 through May 12. President Ronald Reagan actually signed a proclamation in 1982, naming May 6, “National Recognition Day”. The purpose of this day is to honor the country’s registered nurses. Their contributions to our society are often overlooked.

Germ Protection in Today’s Health Care Facility

As every nurse knows, medical environments quickly becoming high-tech areas with an array of electronics and touch screens. Nurses and doctors use these devices on the fly, often without considering the number of germs that they are exposed to. The average nurse touches all sorts of screens and electronic devices throughout the day. Add in the fact that she touches other surfaces like steering wheels, door handles, handrails and smartphones and it is easy to see why germs are spread so easily.
