Quotes & Tips: Your Health First

“Your health should matter to you more than it should to others. When you visit a health facility, your chances of catching an infection and falling sick are high. Doctors and other staff won’t always be vigilant about preventing infection (they’re human too, they forget and tend to be fatigued quite a lot). It becomes your responsibility to ensure the doctor and other staff don’t come into close contact with you if they seem unwell and that you remind the person attending to you to wear gloves and observe proper hygiene before touching you, during and after. ”
