                                               Clean Hands Save Lives!

Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to
others. It is best to wash your hands with soap and clean running water for 20 seconds. However, if soap and clean
water are not available, use an alcohol-based product to clean your hands. Alcohol-based hand rubs significantly
reduce the number of germs on skin and are fast-acting.

When washing hands with soap and water:
• Wet your hands with clean running water and apply soap. Use warm water if it is available.
•   Rub hands together to make a lather and scrub all surfaces.
•   Continue rubbing hands for 20 seconds. Need a timer? Imagine singing "Happy Birthday" twice through.
•   Rinse hands well under running water.
•   Dry your hands using a paper towel or air dryer. If possible, use your paper towel to turn off the faucet.

When should you wash your hands?
• Before preparing or eating food
•   After going to the bathroom
•   After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has gone to the bathroom
•   Before and after tending to someone who is sick
•   After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
•   After handling an animal or animal waste
•   After handling garbage
•   Before and after treating a cut or wound

Remember: If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based gel to clean hands.

When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer:

•   Apply product to the palm of one hand
•   Rub hands together
•   Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry.

Common Questions and Concerns about Blood Donation

  1. “I’m afraid”                                  5. “Do I have enough blood to spare?”            8. “I heard it hurts.”

                              Students Taking Care of Students
                           When dental students take their Dental Office Procedures class, Kim Deterling and
                  Linda Runk give them a unique assignment in order to improve their interpersonal skills—
                  something they’ll have to perfect in order to be successful in a dental office. They must each go
                  out and get to know a fellow KTI student from a different program. Last month, the dental stu-
  dents went above and beyond what was required of them.
            While trying to complete their assignment at lunch, this extraordinary group met an expecting Culinary
  Arts student named Shelly. Feeling a connection with Shelly, the dental students took their assignment to
  heart and decided to help her prepare for her baby. During the next several weeks, they collected a huge box
  full of diapers, blankets, soaps, clothing, and everything else baby-related for their fellow student.
            The big box was recently delivered to Shelly at her home, where she has her hands full with a beauti-
  ful baby girl named Debbie. Shelly was extremely touched and appreciative of the students’ act of kindness.

     A special THANK YOU goes out to the dental students who helped Shelly. We’re all very proud of you!!!
