Back to Basics

I'll never forget my first grade teacher..Mrs O' Toole. She taught us rules of life that would keep us safe, make us better people.

Look both ways before you cross the street.

Look where you are going.

Use the hand rail when you walk down the stairs.

Wash your hands before you eat.

Wear your helmet when riding your bike or skateboard.

Wear your seatbelt in the car.

Red means stop, green means go, yellow means slow down.

Treat your neighbor as you would want to be treated.

Don't smoke

Drugs are bad

Never drink and drive

Dont speak ill of others.

Go to the doctor and dentist for check ups.

Try to eat healthy, 8 glasses of water a day.

Everything in moderation.

Always swim by a lifeguard.

If only people followed these basic rules of life I bet the patient population I see would be cut in half as these factors are a part of the reason they are in the hospital. I cant help but wonder if we would be a safer and healthier people if we would just go back to basics.
