Be a PAIN!
A note to anyone heading to any hosp. or whatever for PM implantation: Be a PAIN. INSIST those who put their hands on you be as clean as possible. You'll be in an environment where you can easily become infected with the Clostridium Difficile bug. It used to be somewhat limited to the elderly using antibiotics but, .................no more! Any age group can develop a C. Diff infection and it ain't no fun!!
