Why?;A) Because washing stimulates rapid bacterial growth.;B) Because hand washing doesn?t work to remove bacteria.;C) Because the soap or hand sanitizer is contaminated.;D) Because you begin to remove resident flora after several washes;5) Which organism is the most resistant to the lethal effects of ultraviolet light?;A) A protozoan that does not form cysts;B) A spore-forming bacteria;C) A virus;D) A gram negative bacteria;6) Since 70% alcohol acts to denature proteins, but this action takes time.
