34. "But I don't do it because it just SEEMS wrong."
I have a solution for you. Decide it does not seem wrong.

You may not see patients, but you probably come in contact with those that do. Flu victims are contagious for three days prior to the onset of symptoms. I read that in a book about the flu, but I forgot the title.
