Description:Depicted in this still life, are items associated with the sterile delivery of proper health care. Pictured here are two glass jars with their sterile contents. One containing cotton balls, and the other containing Q-tips.
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.
