One purpose of this prospective investigation was to assess the frequency of glove perforations and subsequent blood contact associated with selected obstetric procedures.
The second purpose was to assess the relative risk of perforation among different members of the surgical team and determine if time of day or urgency of the procedure affected the frequency of perforation.
Over a 3-month period, obstetric personnel were asked to double glove for all surgical procedures.
After surgery, they placed their gloves in plastic bags and noted the type of procedure, time of day, and position on the surgical team.
They also indicated whether they were aware of a glove tear and, if so, whether blood or fluid was on their hands.
