d. Repeat the technique described in paragraph c above for the left hand. The
team member can assist with donning this glove (see Figure 1-39). Give the team
member a moistened saline sponge so that he can remove excess powder from his
gloves if the gloves are powdered.
Figure 1-39. Assisting with the second glove. The scrubbed team member provides
assistance in donning this glove by holding the cuff of the glove with his gloved hand.
NOTE: The scrub should remove the powder from his gloves again.
e. The circulator will readjust the neck fastener if needed and assist scrubbed
team member with tying the outside waist tie of the gown. After the tie is secured, the
gown is adjusted at the bottom (see Figure 1-34). Figure 1-40 shows a gloved and
gowned team member.
