"The cash-strapped Vancouver Island Health Authority is spending $130,000 to teach front-line medical workers how to wash their hands properly.
For the next two months, seven educators will teach refresher courses in Vancouver Island hospitals and community-care facilities, making sure that staff know how to effectively use soap and sanitizing gels to kill germs.
Proper handwashing in hospitals and other health-care facilities is seen as key to preventing the spread of infections.
(CBC) While some employees have criticized the program as a waste of money, B.C. Health Minister George Abbott defended the move, saying it's not money going down the drain."
I agree totally this is just a HUGE waste of money. There wars going on around the world and starving kids in Africa and this is what we do with our money.
