    Feb 2, 2014

One is the resident germ that works to keep you healthy; the other is the transient germ that's picked up from others and can cause you to get sick. Performing hand hygiene removes germs through friction. You can perform hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water or by using an alcohol hand sanitizer.
