    Go with the CDC..I got my information from a poster in the nurses break room, just took and passed the NCLEX, but that doesn't mean I got the infection control q's correct..sorry for the confusion lol

    personally, in the real world, I would never remove my gloves before my gown...that would mean touching a possibly soiled gown with bare hands. Instead, cross your arms, reach back and grab the gown at your shoulders, tear it off, pull your arms through, ball up the gown, and remove the gloves outside the balled up gown, throwing all of it away together. This way, you never touch the outside of the gown with bare hands.

    That is exactly what I was thinking... & how I do it. So on my HESI I answered it that way and of course it was wrong. But yeah a gown can be dirty anywhere! i don't want to touch it without gloves.

    ****I am taking CNA classes right now and real world or not the reason why you take your gloves off before your gown is because your gloves go OVER the cuff of the gown so the cuff is not soiled and you cannot take your gown off first without getting the gloves off the cuff. Otherwise you will contaminate your hands and wrists and arms or anything else in the process. Once you remove the gloves you remove the gown by sliding your fingers in the cuff and pull your hand through the sleeve like you would your glove. Using the hand inside the sleeve you pull the cuff on the other hand out to slide your hand out of the other sleeve. You then begin to roll the gown into itself by only touching the part of the gown that was against your body. The gown is supposed to be fluid resistant which is why by only touching the clean cuffs and the inside of the gown you will not be soiled/contaminated. Also the back is always considered clean so before you remove the gown you untie the back and pull it forward(slide your fingers inside the neckline from the back down to the front. Always use proper handwashing procedures in between all tasks. I would follow the CDC or your state regulations. But handwashing is the most important. I'm pretty certain when in full LPW yiu wash your hands between the removal of every piece. I'll double check. Hope this helps!
