As a parent of a preemie baby Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles and author of the book A Story of Faith is aware first hand the importance of avoiding illness in her household due to the risks involved in her little one’s lungs. Rosie is a registered nurse and has always worked in surgery and labor and delivery in the past and knew that hand washing was always the key to preventing infection spread. But right after her little guy Kaleb was born, she knew it even more due to the delicate health of her 1 lb 10 oz baby in the NICU. The hand washing became an even bigger part and to this day will always remain along with the hand sanitizer.
Some may say, “relax you have to expose your child to germs at some point or another.” Rosie Moore says, “really, did you ever have a baby in the NICU hanging on to life every day until the day he came home? Did you sit countless hours in the hospital NICU wondering if a treatment he was receiving would help him breath on his own again? Then don’t tell a mom of a preemie to relax and expose them to germs.” The world is full of germs and illness and yes we trust in God, but we also need to be prudent and avoid the spread of illness. So if you happen to come across a parent of a preemie that asks you before they go to your house or you come to theirs if you are sick or to wash your hands before greeting her son or after greeting the dogs, don’t feel insulted, just say yes. Here is what the CDC has to says on pets and washing hands
Florida Hospital most recently made an interesting jingle about hand washing. It is funny, but you know what? It gets the point across…Wash your hands!!!
