The only answer, which is the correct answer, is to wash your hands before leaving the patient’s room after initiating IV access.

The reason why washing hands is important is that it helps to reduce the spread of germs. It is best to wash hands immediately in order to save the spread of germs to other patients. These germs can enter other people’s bodies in different ways; it could be the nose, mouth, or any opening in the person’s body.

Frequent washing of hands can avoid the spread of germs and diseases. Washing hands is not applicable to only those in the hospital. It is advisable for everyone to always wash their hands as germs are everywhere.

Well, there is obviously only one answer to this question, and that is to make sure that a person washes his hand after leaving a patient’s room. Washing hands is considered to be very important not only for those who are in hospitals but for those who just want to make sure that they will stay clean for a long time.

Hand washing will be very effective in removing the germs from the hands that may cause various diseases. Do remember that germs can get into the body of a person in different ways. It can enter through the nose, the mouth, and the eyes. It will have the ability to make any person sick, but with frequent hand washing, it can be avoided.
