Abstract

The role of surgical gloving is to minimise the risk of surgical site infection (SSI) and to protect the surgical team from cross infection. However, different practitioners have different views as to when double gloving is appropriate, with many factors like speciality and procedure dictating their use. This review will look at best practice through the evidence available and provide recommendations for practice.
