Sally -- why hospitals are doing it is that
studies have shown that hospitals that use it have a far lower rate of

matter what the policies on it are, and they do tend to use the squirt
machines at the doors! Unfortunately, its presence tends to
further depress actual washing rates, yet not enough to negate the
benefits of having it.
I remember reading recently that the stuff is no more
effective than soap and water. Why is everyone jumping on this
bandwagon, especially the medical profession!
Now back to books! :)
