Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center recently filmed a music video that features employees washing their hands to the tune of the popular Beatles song "I Want to Hold Your Hand."
The song, "I Want to Wash My Hands," is performed by a band featuring Sierra Vista doctors and nurses. The lyrics encourage people to do just that: wash their hands. It was filmed at the hospital during a three-day period with employees in every department.
The video kicks off a hand washing campaign at Sierra Vista, where there are banners on its parking lot light poles to remind visitors the importance of washing their hands as a way of controlling infections and contributing to their overall health.
The hospital is hoping the video goes viral so they have put in on YouTube.
