Hospital staff teach youngsters importance of hygiene

Blackburn Citizen: Hospital staff teach youngsters importance of hygiene Hospital staff teach youngsters importance of hygiene

STAFF from Beardwood Hospital visited Westholme Infant School to teach pupils the importance of hand washing and germ control.

It was the third visit to the school by the private hospital’s ‘Clean Team’, led by Sue Walsh, who came armed with a UV light box and a special hand wash that mimics germs, to show the children just how easy it was to spread bacteria.

She said: “It was lovely to be asked back to Westholme Infant School to teach a new intake of students about hand washing and hygiene.

“At BMI The Beardwood Hospital, we are committed to providing the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness to our patients and it’s great that we are able to take this knowledge out into the local community to educate our children.”

We never got this, when I was at school!
All we got was the Nit Nurse, every September and just once, a woman from the school clinic, that handed out these tablets that you put in water to dissolve them. Then you swilled it round your mouth and it made your teeth go pink, so you knew where to clean them. However, we just put them in the dogs bowl, as he looked hilarious, with pink teeth!
