I recently read a social post “I’m a perfectionist with a procrastinator complex. Someday I’m going to be awesome!”. I really wish I was witty enough to come up with these types of sayings, but am so thankful that someone is and that someone is just like me! I like to be organized. I like to be perfect and without a doubt I love to procrastinate. I tell myself I work better under pressure...
This week I was organized. I knew exactly what the topic of this week’s blog was going to be. I knew it on Monday. Tuesday, I could have written the blog but decided to wait until Thursday as that’s when I usually write it. Well….last night was spent in the hospital with my son. Nothing too serious and readily handled with a nebulizer treatment and prednisone. He’s back at school today with a note to the teacher apologizing if he’s a bit hyper. If you’ve not experienced a child (or me for that matter) on prednisone, it can be akin to someone drinking a can (or two) of Red Bull or any other energy drink.
So while I had a great blog topic (UVC disinfection of the soles of shoes), last night I had fun doing a mini-audit of infection prevention practices. There were a few breaches as one would unfortunately expect around PPE use and hand hygiene. I may have loitered in the hall surreptitiously observing the environmental staff going about their duties and am happy to say they were very thorough in their cleaning processes! Kudos to them!
I may also consider the disinfection of shoe soles in a different light (pun intended) after watching where my son walked and where the bottoms of his shoes ended up! You’ll just have to wait until next week to read about it!
