Cardboard nurses tackle infection22nd April 2008
Life-size cardboard "cut-out" nurses are in use at hospitals in Nottinghamshire in order to try and stop infections from spreading.
The nurses, in place at King's Mill and Newark hospitals, deliver an electronic voice recording which is triggered when people walk past and reminds them to ensure their hands are washed. Elaine Overton, a senior infection control nurse, said: "It's about different ways of getting the message across and about changing emphasis so it's not getting boring."
