Hang on, aren’t women forced into gowns without underwear? Then told to sit down? Same gowns worn by other women before?
Could that source of fomite explain previous studies of HPV infection, among virgins?
For example, a small study published in 2009 indicated that not only were 15% of all stethoscopes tested contaminated with MRSA, but also that the MRSA on the stethoscopes had survived there for upwards of 60 days!
Also, most hospitals do not allow artifical fingernails or nail enhancement on health care workers because the false nails (fomites) consistently have higher bacterial loads than natural nails. Also, there have been a number of studies (example) where doctor’s neckties were found to be commonly contaminated with bacteria. Not all that shocking when you think about how often men wash their ties?
Why are doctors wearing ties?
But most recently, a new study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, 60-65% of scrubs and lab coats of health care workers tested in the report were contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria. The pockets, sleeves, and abdominal areas were tested. Additionally, 21 of nurse’s samples and 6 from the doctor’s samples taken were drug resistant. Eight of the samples were identified as MRSA (methicillin resistant Staph aureus ).
Imagine how gross plastic Ikea furniture is…
Hospitals and doctors are struggling to get it right, though. Just announced in 2010, the DocFroc:
lab coats and scrubs that are embedded with Tri-Active, an FDA approved silver-based antimicrobial compound that can kill resistant micro-organisms such as MRSA, ECOLI and Salmonella.
It appears that the most important factor in prevention of disease is to simply better identify what has been transferring disease in the first place.
If they believed in germ theory they wouldn’t avoid disposable specula to save a few cents.
How much is half the population’s life worth? Plenty of baby health and defect issues could be avoided with proper female health care. This is part of the reason women are scared to have kids, so called trad men instantly stop giving a shit after conception. If she dies prematurely of cervical cancer though, they hand wave it away because while they pretend to care about forced vaccination, they don’t even pretend to care about forced, dangerous ‘pelvic exams’.
