The importance of hand washing
Hi, I'm Dr. Mark Benson.
Hi, I'm Dr. Mark Benson. We want you to know that your health and safety are our extremely important
to us, and we remain here for you.
Today, our Chief Nursing Executive Kari Garnett is going to walk us through the importance of hand-
washing according to CDC guidelines as you visit our offices.
Thank you, Dr. Benson. We are committed to serving our patients with the best care possible and to
keep them safe and healthy.
Our employees always follow CDC guidelines regarding handwashing and sanitize their hands before and
after every care interaction.
Please plan to wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds before your appointment and use the
hand sanitizer provided as you enter and exit the practice.
A helpful, fun tool to remember is that the happy birthday song is 10 seconds long, so hum that twice
while you wash your hands to make sure you're always washing for twenty seconds!
Thanks, Kari! As you can see, we're taking every step to make you comfortable and safe here in our
practices - if you have questions or any concerns, please talk to your provider. Thank you.
Handwashing is one of the easiest, most effective ways to keep germs and viruses from spreading, including COVID-19. It’s also important to wash your hands according to CDC guidelines. Chief Nursing Executive Kari Garnett explains how in this video.
