  9. Do you check for holes after you open a tray?
    We do at both facilities I work at. It's a very good practice, and I'd say at least once every couple of weeks a wrapper will have a hole through both sides and is therefore not considered sterile.

  16. Warning about duraprep
    Thats really weird. If you look at the way a Duraprep is put together you can see how it's possible, but you would think it would be one in a million.

  19. Can you place something unsterile on top of sterile if wrapped?
    Can you explain this in a little more detail?. If it can happen with stacking you would think even handling the items could cause this.

    I'm sorry but I have to respectfully disagree with you. Having all females in the room hasn't always even been an option and shouldn't be now. Especially since odds are the surgeon won't be a female....
