- Sep 1, '12 by One1Quote from RNsRWeHaha, it works when you have the nice, easy sticks with the gardenhose veins that are visible from across the room. If I have a harder stick, I sometimes feel first, then put a second set on, and if it is a challenging stick, I might have to skip the second set altogether.TWO layers of gloves to start an IV? How on earth do you feel a vein? Impressive, to me.
I've never heard of using sterile gloves to start an IV, either, though....

- Sep 1, '12 by R. Obias Jr., R.N.I went back to the original post, come to think of it , the therapist was actually doing the double-glove technique not to be "extra sterile" for the patient but as an extra protection for himself. Even so hope my point of references be noted to clarify the proper gloving techniques used inside or outside the OR , I also know we nurses are also taking extra precaution in trying to protect ourselves from the hazards of the profession.
- Sep 2, '12 by matejamagdicGloves are primarily for caregivers protection, not patients, and they are permeable. And the longer you wear them and more your hands sweat, more permeable they are, no mather if you have 2, 3 or 10 layers.
