Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The purpose of this study was to evaluate glove failure rates under in-use conditions during routine surgical procedures. It has been reported that surgical gloves vary in quality and, therefore, in the level of barrier protection provided. Manufacturers make differing styles of surgical gloves for different standard surgical procedures. The data in phase one reviewed the number of times a member of the operative team changed their gloves during a surgical procedure secondary to a known puncture in their glove. The indicator glove was introduced in phase two and the data reviewed then compared the number of times the operative glove was changed due to a known puncture in the surgical glove. Lastly, phase three incorporated staff compliance to double glove and do so with a colored underglove. Faculty Disclosure: Judith A. Seltzer, Employee, Molnlycke Health Care
