Dear all,
I was a patient recently in a NSW private hospital and I did see such
practice, but was too unwell to care at the time! I also get asked if
that practice is OK by novice paramedics who are trying to understand
and combine appropriate hand hygiene and PPE into their daily habits.

Hi

Has anyone else noticed
staff wearing gloves and then cleaning the gloves with
alcohol hand rub – rather than removing the gloves and
performing hand hygiene?

 

 

Thanks
