Read and follow instructions. Sound easy enough? It isn't. For some people, it's the key to most of their academic or workplace problems. They read or hear one set of instructions, but their teacher, supervisor or trainer has given different instructions. Some people deliberately ignore instructions. They "wing it." They think they can scrape by, doing any old thing they choose or in the case of cleaning do it "the way their mother taught them". They're wrong. It doesn't matter how good a job you do. If you do the wrong job, there's going to be consequences.
Remember, in order to keep your patients, staff and yourself safe from the cleaning and disinfecting products your using read, understand, interpret and carefully follow the instructions found on the product’s label.
