Coronavirus: What to do with all that hand-sanitiser?

When I can’t get to a usable sink I use gel. At least I used to – until a few weeks ago when we ran out

I’m a community psychiatric nurse, a CPN. That tells you something about where I work – in the community. You know, the place where I can’t always get to a sink. I’ve relied on hand-sanitiser gel throughout my career to keep myself and my patients safe, especially when giving injections or performing other procedures involving a biological risk.

Hand sanitiser is OK but it’s not as good as soap and water. When I’m near a usable sink I use soap and water because it’s better. When I can’t get to a usable sink I use gel. At least I used to – until a few weeks ago when we ran out.
