"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.
