There are a few professions where you pretty much assume the highest level of sanitation regulations will be followed. Chefs, servers, butchers, even a fast food attendant, you expect them all to be washing their hands on the regular, or at least you hope they do.\nWhen it comes to doctors, nurses, and health care professionals, you don't even question their sanitation practices. In a hospital, you inherently understand that everyone is constantly washing their hands and ensuring germs aren't spread.\nUnfortunately, in Montreal, that isn't quite the case.\nCBC's Enquête delved into the regularity of handwashing in hospitals across Quebec, investigating how often a health care professional will wash their hands before they see a patient, and after.\nThe results are pretty worrying. A hospital's employees should be washing their hands before and after seeing a patient at a rate of 80%, and only a handful of hospitals in Quebec actually met that requirement.\nDon't assume that Montreal's hospitals are doing much better than others in the province. None of the city's hospitals were found to be washing their hands at the minimum 80% rate before seeing a patient, or after. Kind of worrying.\nBelow you'll find a listing of all of the Montreal hospitals investigated within the CBC study. All the figures below showcase the rate at which health care professionals in Montreal washed their hands before seeing a patient.
