Ca de exemplu acum http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/101109/canada/canada_toronto_hospital_magazines
Pe la noi prin spitale, in salile de asteptare la cabinetele medicale, sunt mormane de reviste, ziare, de toate felurile, pe caprarii ( pentru copii, pentru femei, barbati, de gradinarit, culinare, etc ) cu care iti petreci timpul pana iti vine randul. Ca astepti ... de regula, noi am asteptat cam in jur de 1 ora. Si tare bine ne prindeau revistele alea : mai ales mie, ca au multe poze ...
Nah, si acuma, din prea multa grija pentru pacienti, doctorii au hotarat nu mai lase urma de revista in salile de asteptare : pentru ca au microbi si pacientii se pot imbolnavi !
Cam asa arata spitalele cu staif de pe la noi :
Asa ceva nici macar in tarile din lumea a 3 a, asitentele nu isi permit . Nici macar in Romania ...
Mai mult decat atat, astia prin spitale au propaganda grup, cu sterilizatorul ala lichid, pe care il pun peste tot, insotit de afise care incurajeaza oamenii sa-l foloseasca : cica ucide si cel mai nabadaios microb ! Au cateva sticle pe biroul fiecarei receptionare, au in sala de asteptare, au pana si la lift ! Canu cumva sa se piteasca vreun microb printre degetele pacientilor, si sa scape ne- killer-it !
Ca da, micorbii adusi din strada, pe uniformele personalului medical, sunt privilegiati : ei au scutire de la doctor ....
Cam cat de important poate fi microbu' din revista, dupa ce folosesti dezinfectantul minune, si dupa ce ai asteptat 6-9 -12 luni in dureri , cu calmante, in scaun cu rotile, in carje, ca sa-ti vina randul sa te vada doctorul pecialist ? Parca timpul trece altfel cand esti in dureri continue zi si noapte, 9 luni ....
Insa da, grija celor din sistemul medical este ... microbul de pe paginile revistelor ! Ca in rest,. le-au "revolvat" pe toate : nici gura nu le miroase, nici usturoi n-au mancat .... Iar se tin canadienii fete mari ...
Am sa pun mai jos, articolul in original, in caz ca dispare de pe saitul original :
Toronto hospital bans wait room magazines Module body
Tue Nov 9, 7:49 AM
TORONTO (CBC) - Sitting in hospital waiting room can be boring, and it's likely to get even worse at Toronto's Women's College Hospital, which is banning magazines.
In a move to stop the spread of germs, the hospital is removing all magazines shared by people. Posters inside the hospital say the decision was made because "reading material spreads viruses and infections."
Michael Gardam, director of infection prevention and control for Toronto's University Health Network, says getting rid of magazines makes sense.
"If you've got somebody who's in isolation because they've got C. difficile or some other super bug, and they're reading that magazine, you don't really want to put that back on the rack for another person," said Gardam.
"In a health-care setting, the people who are going to be exposed to these things are going to be more likely to pick something up than someone who's riding a subway, because presumably your average subway person is healthier than your person in a hospital."
Maxine Brandon was at Women's College on Monday to visit a good friend and says she doesn't mind the extra measures.
When it comes to germs, Brandon says she takes just about every precaution to stay healthy and is happy some hospitals are doing the same.
"I think it's appropriate for flu season because of the H1N1 and we don't know what we're going to expect this year," she said.
Gardam says there is no easy ways to disinfect magazines, and points out that over the years, hospitals in other parts of the world have been chipping away at the spread of germs. In the United Kingdom, for example, some hospitals have banned ties, jewelry and watches, articles that might pass germs.
"Another key strategy could be that if people are going to share magazines ... that they actually wash their hands after reading them."
