Incontinent care

Specialties LTC Directors


Is there a new practice for double gloving for incontinent care? We received a tag for infection control incont. care and are doing inservices. Our sister facilities infection control nurse is educating her staff that they can double glove then instead of changing gloves just remove the 1st pair and they are good to complete the care. I find this wrong and am just looking to see what others are doing.

I mean you can double glove for the same patient in the case of a massive code brown, etc.  Im not sure its wise to teach this practice though, because someone is Sure to misunderstand and next thing you know they'll be going over to the other bed with their 2nd set.......
