Hygene - particularly important now!

Post by russell » Thu 05 Mar 2020 17:13

On Monday I visited the Super U supermarket in Ille-sur-Tet. I had to use the toilet and went to wash my hands afterwards. There was no soap in either dispenser in the gents so after just using cold water I informed their reception desk. Today I re-visited and checking found that there was still no soap so again went to the desk and was told that someone would attend to it right away. Before leaving the shop 1/2 hour later I checked again - no change.

The advice regarding COVID-19 is to wash hands frequently with soap and water. I would think it is particularly important after pushing trolleys that are handled by everyone.

I took someone for an appointment at Montpellier CHU last week. Sitting in the corridor with loads of others waiting to see the consultant ( the waiting room was full) I was shocked to see there was no hand wash anywhere and the one loo for the whole corridor was decidedly grubby. (Tho there was soap) If the hospitals can’t provide hand wash.......

Had to visit the Centre de Pneumonology in Perpignan on Tuesday and there was a big bottle of hand sanitiser on the reception counter and a notice asking you to use it both on entering and leaving. So some people are taking notice.

I visited a health professional in Perpignan this week. The toilet attached to the waiting area had no soap, no towel and no toilet paper!

Last week I visited someone in clinic at Pierre, hadwash everywhere, so very happy there to wash on entering building, patients room and again on leaving.

But today I have used public toilets 3 times in different places during the day...you know what shocked me...? On the 3 occasions whilst washing my hands after using said loos..ladies walked out of cubicles and directly left the washroom area without even a glance at the sink area! These were in clean public buildings with soap and power dryers...not some cruddy backstreet dive . I have to own up to exclaiming outloud as they exited ..
