The inferior lobe, lower part, of my left lung is scar tissue and I don’t get as much as oxygen as the “normal” person does.

All around hospitals you see where signs are up that have step by step procedures, hand washing reminders, and the list goes on; although finding studied evidence that these visual aids work was difficult to find. For this review, an article was chosen that analyzed predictors of healthcare provider stethoscope disinfection and its impact on infection control in the pediatric population. An anonymous survey was sent out and a topic that was explored was barriers to disinfections. Most believed that stethoscopes had the ability to spread infections, but nevertheless, very little healthcare providers indicated that they disinfected their stethoscope after every use. (Muniz, Sethi, Zaghi, Ziniel, & Sandora, 2012) The odds of disinfecting stethoscopes after each use were greatly decreased for healthcare providers that indicated a lack of visual reminders was a barrier to their compliance.
