Description:Lying atop a mobile gurney, a patient was being prepped, and coached just prior to the subsequent medical procedure that was about to take place in this hospital setting. The nurse was wearing her requisite blue colored hospital scrubs, and had draped a stethoscope around her neck.
Maintenance of a clean, sterile environment is paramount in a healthcare setting in order to reduce the risk of transmitting further infection to hospital patient’s, as well as to the healthcare staff members.
