Nurses News for February 2017
As we move forward to spring through the flu and winter illness season, continue to practice good hygiene to protect you and your family from germs.
Most germs are spread from person to person through the air in sneezes, coughs, or even breaths. Germs can spread through contacting sweat, saliva, and blood. The person to person spread of germs commonly occurs by touching, sneezing, or coughing, . Germs can be found on everyday objects like door knobs, pencils, books and desktops, germs are everywhere!
Steering clear of the things that can spread germs is the best way to protect yourself. Practicing good hygiene like handwashing is an excellent way to reduce exposure! Remember, germs fear and stay clear with “soap and water” use!
Wash your hands before you eat, after using the restroom, when coughing, blowing your nose, playing outside, touching your pets, or visiting with others who are sick.
A good way to be sure that you have done a good job washing your hands is to sing the Happy Birthday song while scrubbing your hands. This length of time is known to kill and rinse away germs.
Also think “Elbow please when you cough or sneeze”. This means coughing into the bend of your elbow instead of your hand. This helps prevent germs from spreading through the air and keeps them off of your hands.
If someone you know has the flu or an illness, try to limit your exposure, do not drink or eat from their food servings. Also, eat good healthy food, brush your teeth after meals, get plenty of rest, exercise daily, visit your doctor and dentist regularly, and be sure to get your shots when needed.
On Another Note
With warmer temperatures, head lice can become more prevalent. Lice can be transmitted by direct contact with someone who has lice. Avoiding exposure is the best way to prevent getting lice. Avoid head to head contact, do not share combs, brushes, hats, caps, hair ribbons, coats, or towels.
In an effort to control any lice outbreaks at T.H.E.,
· Treat your student with appropriate topical medicine only if you see live lice. (Contact the school clinic, your doctor, or pharmacist for questions).
· Thoroughly comb the hair with a fine tooth comb after treating it to remove as many nits (eggs) as possible.
· Discuss with your student how head lice is spread and discourage them from sharing personal items with others.
Prompt and proper treatment of lice will help prevent the spread of, and exposure to, all who come to or attend T.H.E. Campus. Anyone can get head lice.
Thank you for your support! Please call the school clinic if you have any concerns or questions about your student’s health and wellness! (210-407-8221 or 210-407-8203).
