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), a box of adhesive bandages, two cotton balls, which had been set atop the counter next to the H2O2, and a rumpled tube of antibiotic ointment.
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.
