Duct Tape -- So Many Uses

The infection prevention team at the Trinity Medical Center in the Quad Cities on the Iowa/Illinois border say they created a 'Red Box' safe zone -- a 3-foot square of red duct tape extending from the threshold of the door of patients who have infections -- to facilitate communication with patients in isolation or with 'contact precautions.'"
