After reading this article, it left me with plenty to think about and consider. I felt partly grossed out and disgusted but mostly educated. I look at my surroundings in a completely different way now.
I think it’s great to have people like Dr. Gerber in this world, who does research on the strange things such as toilet splatter. With his and other scientist research we are more educated about where germs come from or where they can go, which all leads up to preventative steps for infection control and contamination. For example, I am now more aware of the bottom of my purse then ever before. Also kitchen sinks; I never would have thought that it can have more fecal bacteria than a toilet.
Another subject the article touched on is MRSA, which is definitely a major public health issue today. I work in a hospital as a CNA and see many patients with MRSA cases. Just to get a patient’s vital signs or anytime I walk in their room, I wear at least a gown, mask, and gloves to protect myself and other patients. I know that wearing these PPE’s are very important to prevent spread of infection.
