covering sterile trollies

  1. 0 Hi,

    I recently started a job in neurosurgery theatre. My question relates to covering prepared trollies with a sterile drape if there is a period of time between the set up of equipment is done and the patient entering theatre. All other theatres in the department cover and the practice education dept advise to cover however the theatre I am currently in state they do not cover. I am looking for any info or advice on this so I can be 100% sure I am doing the right thing.
