    We do not require any additional scrubs other than the basic handwashing or hand sanitizer prior to seeing patients.

    Are other center requiring staff to do an extended handwash at the start of the shift? 
    How long is the initial scub?
    Are you requiring them to use a scrub brush?
    After the initial scrub (if you do one)  what is your hand hygeine prolicy?
