Duct Tape Used To Prevent Infection

Filed under: HealthWellness

We've concluded that duct tape solves all problems.

Besides fixing auto parts, making rad wallets and amazing prom dresses, duct tape also helps to ward off infections.

Check it. A hospital in the midwest has found a unique way to use duct tape to control the spread of infection. Here's some sad stats for ya: Hospital acquired infections are becoming a huge public health problem, costing $30 billion per year in medical bills and causing 99,000 deaths annually.

But, the Trinity Medical Center, which includes four hospitals, is trying to change all that. They have decided to use duct to create a "red box" safe zone, which is a three-foot-square area extending from the door into a patient's room so that hospital employees can communicate with isolated patients without the need of "scrubbing up" and wasting tedious time.

By using this simple system, health care could save $110,000 a year and 2,700 hours of staff time.

That's a lot of money and time saved for something you can pick up from the 99 cent store.

Duct tape is literally saving lives, guys.

Here she goes again!

LOLz!

Taylor Momsen recently performed with her band, The Pretty Reckless, at the 2011 Download Festival at Donington Park in Leicestershire, and just as we've come to expect from her, her outfit of choice was VERY risque for a 17-year-old!

Check out a photo of her almost nip-slip, which she thankfully obscured with some strategically placed duct tape (above)!

She just LOVES getting everyone talking, doesn't she?!

Consider your mission accomplished, Little J!

Let's try and keep those tittays under wraps until you're 18, mmkay? Ha!

Sofia Squeezes Into A Silver Dress

The sexy Sofia Vergara had us gasping for air when we saw her at the Critic's Choice Awards tonight.

At first glance we thought she was wearing one of those dresses made of duct tape, but then we realized her metallic frock was by Temperley London.

Regardless of what it was made of, there's no denying Sofia looked hawt!
