Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurses

This chat is guest hosted by @IPS_Infection

October 16th to 22nd is International Infection Prevention Week

The use of examination gloves as part of standard precautions is recommended widely and generally accepted as appropriate to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. However, gloves and apron use as a universal contact precaution is often a battleground for infection prevention practitioners. What does the evidence base tell us about this intervention? A recent article in Clinical Infectious Diseases (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25900169) reported that there was no effect of universal gloves and apron usage in critical care units. Does this suggest that they are safe to use for all contact or that they are a futile expense? A further report (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24097234) found no significant difference in the acquisition of multi-drug resistant bacteria; is this therefore an intervention we should be recommending?

The use of examination gloves for aseptic technique has no evidence base yet infection preventionists the world over recommend using them. Thus another pertinent question is ‘should we use gloves to practice an aseptic technique?’

There is no recommendation within epic3 (https://www.his.org.uk/files/3113/8693/4808/epic3_National_Evidence-Based_Guidelines_for_Preventing_HCAI_in_NHSE.pdf) to use gloves to practice an aseptic technique due to the lack of evidence in the literature.

The costs associated with glove use are very high considering 42% are used inappropriately (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24412643). Are we overusing gloves at the detriment of our patients? Both in terms of potentially increasing the transmission of microorganisms and increasing costs.
