I was inspired by the latest mass email from Tertiary Hospital Medical Network (makers of fine medical timewasting spam). It reaches a new low. Judge for yourself:
AN INVITATION FROM THE INFECTION CONTROL COMMITTEE
Improving hand hygiene among health care workers supports one of the 2004 National Patient Safety Goals. [The] Infection Control Committee invites all employees and medical staff to participate in a contest to create a new slogan and/or logo regarding the importance of hand hygiene by health care workers.
The selected slogan or logo will be used in this year's hospital-wide campaign to increase awareness and motivation for improving hand hygiene among our staff, visitors and patients.
The winning entry will be selected by the Infection Control Committee and awarded $100 worth of Recreation Connection merchandise.
Here's my entry:
Do you know where your hands have BEEN??
Have at it. If you win, I'll pass your prize along. No, really.
Oh, by the way, I'll be out of town for a few days... see you next week.
