My name is Daryn Lyons and I am from Columbus, OH. I went to Worthington Kilbourne High School. I have an orange tabby cat named Garfield. Over the summer I went to Virginia Beach and by a lake in North Carolina. I accomplished so many things while I was vacationing at these places. This was the first time I white water rafted, rode a horse, and went tubing behind a boat.
"Until that moment, when I stood there looking at the sign on his door, it had not occur ed to me that I might have given him that infection. But the truth is I may have. One of us certainly did." This quote basically summarizes the entire essay. The essay had two different ideas that related closely to each other. The first was about the importance of medical staff washing their hands because this greatly reduces the bacterium spread throughout the hospital. The second idea asked why it was so hard for medical staff to wash their hands regularly. I learned that less doctors wash their hands on a regular basis than I thought. The idea that some doctors/surgeons are preforming surgery after they may have even just had lunch without washing their hands is repulsive. I completely agree with the quote in the essay on page 211 halfway through paragraph 18. The engineer asks the simple question "Why can't you?" in reference to washing their hands. This is a question that should not have an excuse.
