For Your Good Health…
Prevent Infections… Wash Your Hands!!!
According to the American Journal of Infection Control:
“ … improper or insufficient hand-washing … is a leading cause of … infections. Hand-washing is the single most important procedure in the prevention of … infections and yet it remains the most violated of all infection control procedures.”
Because we come in contact with sick people on a daily basis, co-workers, friends, immediate family and grandchildren, we would be well advised to institute regular hand-washing procedures in our lives.
Remember . . .
While health is often referred to as the absence of illness or injury,
Wellness is a lifestyle choice in which you take a proactive role in self care.
“The cost of a thing is the amount of life required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.” Therefore, it is important to take action.
If a higher level of wellness is a personal goal of yours, but you are in need of some external guidance and motivation, contact your neighborhood Pharmacist / Nutritionist / Fitness Professionals at Carnegie-Sargent’s Pharmacy and Health Center.
