I was getting ready to take my temperature when the thermometer slipped 
out of my hand and shattered all over my bathroom. I cleaned it up the 
best that I could, I do not see any more mercury. I am afraid that if 
there is still little pieces of mercury on the floor or sink it could harm 
me, what do you think?
