GOWN AND GLOVE PROCEDURES (SURGEON)
a. The scrub assists the surgeon and assistants with the gown and gloves as
soon as possible after they enter the operating room. Never interrupt a sponge count
for this. The scrub receives the gown and gloves from the circulator and will hold the
gown and gloves for the surgeon in accordance with the procedures covered in
Subcourse MD0933, Scrub, Gown, and Glove Procedures.
b. Usually, gloves have a light powder to facilitate gloving. A fresh sponge and
saline solution is used to wipe the powder from the gloves and the sponge is discarded.
