Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: The purpose of this study is to compare the hand skin conditions, satisfaction of nurses, and surgical scrub costs between waterless hand preparation and traditional surgical scrub. Methodology: This is a parallel experimental study in a 2900 bed medical center. Forty-three operating room nurses were recruited base upon sample size calculation and randomized by sealed envelope into two groups. One group applied the scrubless, waterless hand preparation (1% Chlorhexidine Gluconate in 61% Ethyl Alcohol); and the other followed the traditional scrub regiment for four weeks. Two members of research team made random observations of surgical scrub technique (n=60); to ensure the internal validity, Hand Skin Assessment scale, developed by Larson (2001); was used to evaluate the appearance, intactness, moisture content, and sensation of hand skin conditions every week by a blind physician. Satisfactions were measured by a self-developed tool and costs were estimated by operating room data, 2009. Results: The result shows that cost of waterless hand preparation is NT $514,000 less than the traditional regiment. There were no significant effects of waterless hand preparation in hand skin conditions (p=.08); and satisfactions (p=.72), different with former studies. Longer intervening period maybe needed. Perioperative Nursing Implications: The antiseptic effects of waterless hand preparation were approved by studies and FDA. Though there were no significant effects on hand skin conditions and satisfaction in this study, considering the cost savings with the same quality, we still suggest using the waterless hand preparation for daily practice.
