Unclean magazines

Paso RoblesMay 19, 2014 

Why are doctors allowed to have magazines in their waiting rooms? People go to doctors because they are sick with a cold, flu, rash or for many other reasons.

A sick person picks up a magazine with hands that maybe haven’t been washed for some time, maybe coughs on the magazine, then places it back on the table for the next patient. If patients need something to read while waiting, they should bring it with them, then take it with them when they leave. Get rid of those unsanitary magazines.
