Americans do so like a good quiz, assuming it carries no penalty for wrong answers. Witness the popularity of those ever-fab Cosmo questionnaires: "Are You Enough of a Bad Girl?" "Do You Ace a First Date?" "Are You an Oversharer or Mysterious?" Now comes a quiz that even the most painfully modest, prudish or uptight can enjoy! The Patient Safety IQ Quiz!
Let's take a look at the first question:
"Which of the following statements is true?
a. Hand washing helps prevent infection.
b. Using hand sanitizer (liquid, gel or foam) helps prevent infection.
c. Getting a flu shot helps prevent disease and infection.
d. All of the above."
Perhaps "enjoy" was too strong a word.
