Md. To Watch Handwashing in Hospitals
CLARKSVILLE, Md. - Be sure to wash up, Maryland doctors and nurses. You're being watched.
State officials said Tuesday they're creating teams of staff members at hospitals around the state to secretly monitor their colleagues' hand-washing habits as part of a first-of-its-kind program. The monitors will contribute to a systemwide report on hand-washing, using $100,000 in federal stimulus money.
