    That reminds me of a guy who wrote a letter to the editor of the hometown newspaper. (remember those?) He complained about being kicked out of an establishment for being barefooted. He argued that his feet get washed every day. His shoes? Never. He has a point, but I kind of realize that the other customers probably didn't want to see his bare feet. I don't remember what kind of place it was.

    Equally disturbing is the number of health care workers who glove up. After their patient encounters they continue with their gloved hands at the keyboard. I recall a time at the lab when I saw a tech outside having a smoke still wearing the gloves he'd worn in the lab. I asked him if he'd washed the chemicals off his gloves before lighting up. He looked at me with a puzzled face.
    Gloves don't kill people. People being stupid with gloves kill people. In too many cases it is the appearance of safety that causes hazards, kinda like so many tool guards in the shop.

    "After their patient encounters they continue with their gloved hands at the keyboard. I recall a time at the lab when I saw a tech outside having a smoke still wearing the gloves he'd worn in the lab."
    I worked in a large Public hospital for near a decade as an orderly mostly night shift and was sole charge theatre orderly for most of that. The incredible amount of the most basic of cleanliness violations I saw left me with zero respect for doctors or nurses as a groups. If it wasn't for the cleaners entering a hospital would be a guaranteed death sentence.
    Theatre nurses going for lunch at the local shops in their scrubs and walking straight back into theatre is one that really bugs me. Needles chucked in the general rubbish along with infectious material. Gloved nurses treating infectious patients and going immediately to other patients. Doctors were even worse.
    Judging by the number f people who came in with severe complications often due to infection from private hospitals I would hazard a guess that they might even be worse.

    When I worked at Taco Bell, Checkers, and Little Ceasars in the 90s gloves weren't a thing.
