Nope. I do try to have them on when receiving a new patient. That's the point at which the most bodily fluids are flyin' in my experience (esp. saliva w/ coughing and removal of airway adjuncts). Sometimes the bedding/gown is pretty bloody depending upon how messy the case was.
But once I've done my initial assessment the gloves stay off unless I'm doing something that warrants them. I absolutely hate the feeling of gloves and my hands get sweaty.
