their hands when they come in my house to see my 1yo ds? with the flu season about to break out, i dont want him to cath anything so asking them to use some alcohol gel when they come in is not that unreasonable is it?
hes healthy in the conventional sence but he has cp and has previously suffered fits. and i just know that when he gets a bad infection he will have febrile (sp) convultions so i'm trying to wrap him in cotton wool as much as i can. the think is i know they at least gel their hand after seeing children when they see them in hospital grounds so surely they should when they come to someones house?
Definitely just say. There were signs all over the hospital where my sister had her baby recently saying "it's fine to check" or something more catchy. Even if it isn't necessary they'll want you to feel comfortable.
