First saw this over at TAH.

I have always been impressed and fascinated by instructors who come up with practical ways to sharpen clinical simulation. I first became a medic in '84, and have seen lots of things used to simulate blood, vomit, etc. This particular use of Tabasco is darn near-brilliant, IMO. We all know that a big problem is how we unthinkingly touch our faces, pens, shears, etc. without being entirely sure that our hands are clean first. Or we touch a common instrument like shears or forceps with dirty gloves on, and then touch or use the same again without gloves - potentially exposing ourselves and our patients. This looks like a good way to concretize the message and experience of how easy it really is to cross-contaminate.
