I attended a clinic at Monklands hospital and had to have blood taken recently. The phlebotomist never washed their hands or changed their apron from the previous patient but only changed their gloves. I had noticed this last year too when my sister had blood taken with a highly infectious blood disorder. It seems to me that there is a lack of understanding by the individual as to infection prevention and protection of both themselves and their patients.
