does anyone wash their hands after washing their genitals in the shower? i use warm water and soap on a washcloth to wash that area but i still worry about getting the virus on my hands and then passing it to someone else that way. is this possible?

Well if you are washing with soap and water then that should be sufficient to kill the virus. The virus itself is very weak and dies very quickly in the air. It will be impossible for you to infect someone, as there has not been any documented cases of catching the virus from an object.

Before you leave the bathroom, just make sure you wash your hands that is enough. If not so, the air will definately kill it.
