St. John’s Mercy team goes the distance to win 3M video contest

November 15, 2010


3M Video Contest

The St. John’s Mercy video got more than 10,000 votes out of a total of 36,000 votes cast. While most of the videos in the contest used humor, the message is very serious. Health care-acquired infections are responsible for 100,000 deaths a year in the United States. The microbiology department wanted to illustrate that even with high-tech measures to combat germs in the hospital, good old-fashioned hand washing is still the first line of defense.
