WHEN TO WEAR GLOVES

Abstract

Because we don't have guidelines on wearing protective gloves, each nurse on the unit where I work has her own practice based on her assessment of the situation. Obviously, this creates inconsistencies and probably confuses patients, since the same procedure may be performed by one nurse wearing gloves, then by another nurse without gloves. Can you recommend guidelines for wearing gloves?
