Isn't there healthcare guidelines listed by all the different agencies on how to properly handle materials and limit the amount of contamination that can occur due to various reasons? I mean, I get that it can sometimes be impossible to completely 100% sterilize everything in every environment, but you'd think it would be common sense for these doctors and nurses to know that dropping something on the floor that's meant to go into YOUR MOUTH isn't a good idea....
What are strands of hair doing in a dentists workplace? its so clean in there!
In the medical field, anything that touches the floor is considered unsterile. The floor is never sterilized except in some extreme instances. The reason being... We walk on the damn thing with our dirty shoes. OP you should report the insistent to the profession's governing body.
27, you are correct about about that, however, do you know how dirty our mouth is naturally? Our mouth is so dirty that something like this will have absolutely zero medical impact. The only actual issue with this scenario is its "gross" and he creeped out a client.
Why the hell did you open your mouth for him to put it back in there? Bloody disgusting.
