Since Health Care is the topic of the day, and it is August, and H1N1 is all the rage, and reportedly will be back this fall, shouldn't MDs wipe down stethoscopes, or sterilize them like a barber does combs?  Of all places that I think that would be dangerous to pass viruses and or germs is the doctors office.  We close down ships, schools, office buildings for cleaning when a virus breaks out causing diarrhea or food poisoning.  A chiropractors office is ripe for MRSA, as well as gyms.  I firmly believe more focus should be placed on decontamination in doctors offices.
