Description: In this day of evidence based nursing and great emphasis on minimizing health- associated infection, why do nurses still wear artificial nails and excessive jewelry? Healthcare workers must not wear artificial nails, stoned rings, bracelets or wristwatches if involved with direct patient care. In one study 13% of nurses, aides and technicians reported they routinely wore artificial nails at work. Fungal organisms can multiply in the moisture trapped between the false and the natural nail.
