Finger licking bad (in rehabilitation units)

The nosocomial problems associated with healthcare professionals repetitively licking their fingers while reviewing hospital charts was first formally documented by Myron M. LaBan, MD FAAPMR – the lead author of a 2004 brief report for the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (Volume 83, Issue 1, pp. 75-78). The report encouraged healthcare professionals to :

1) Wash their hands before and after reviewing medical charts.

2) Become aware of (and ideally refrain from) licking their fingers.
