Never Ask An Obsessive Compulsive About The Use Of The Term "Contamination"

I had a meeting this morning about the delights of Hospital Acquired Infections. It's not a great subject for someone with contamination OCD, as you can probably imagine.

Towards the end of the meeting, there was a brief discussion over whether we should use the term "hand hygeine" or "hand decontamination".

I really didn't know quite how to respond to that. "Well, speaking as an obsessive compulsive, I love the term contamination..."

My mental health dudes were amused.
