NOTE: The circulator must hold on tight to the paper tab so that when the scrub pulls on
the belt the tab doesn't come with the belt and contaminates the scrub.
e. Now the scrub will take hold of the belt tie that is at waist level and tie the
belt to it (see Figures 1-32 and 1-33).
Figure 1-32. Scrub holds belt tie.
Figure 1-33. Scrub ties the belt.
ADJUSTMENT OF GOWN
Now that the gloves are on and final tie of the gown is done, the circulator
completes his adjustment of the gown by stooping down, grasping the outside of the
side seams at the bottom of the gown, and gently pulling down (see Figure 1-34) in
accordance with local SOP.
