Description:Depicted in this still life, are items associated with the sterile delivery of proper health care. Pictured here is a bottle of the disinfectant, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), and two glass apothecary jars one containing sterile Q-tips, and the other containing cotton balls. Two loose cotton balls were set on the counter in front of the bottle of H2O2.
Science has shown that when participating in activities involving the delivery of healthcare-related services, an environment made as clean as possible is paramount when the goal of intervention is a positive, uncontaminated outcome. The inclusion of pathogenic organisms in the healthcare setting including bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can all have negative consequences upon attempts at achieving a beneficial result.
