I am new to allnurses and this is my first post.
I have been a scrub nurse for around a year now and was lucky enough for ten months to not get a blade injury. However my luck ran out and caught myself with a dirty myringotomy blade whilst single gloved. Since then I have double gloves for every case but a few days ago one of out head and neck consultants told me of a new piece of research that shows double gloving can lead to more injuries due to the loss of feeling that you get with 2 gloves.
What are your thoughts?
The source patient blood results were all negative for HIV/hep c etc
