Ten Steps Properly Wear A Surgical Gown
After entering the operating room, put your hands in front of you and stand close to the scrub nurse or scrub tech. They will open a sterile towel and lay it over one of your hands. Step away from the scrub nurse and use the towel to dry yourself. First, you should dry your fingers, then both of your palms and the backs of your hands. Then dry your wrists and finally your forearms.
After drying both hands and arms, then grasp the doctor gown and step into an area where the gown may be opened without risk of contamination. Put both hands into armholes. Hold the gown away from the body, and allow it to unfold completely.
Slip both hands and forearms into armholes and sleeves; keep hands at shoulder level and away from the body.
If you are open glove donning, pull cuff to thumb level. If you are closed glove donning, push the hands to the edge of the cuff.
The circulating nurse should pull the gown over shoulders, touching only the inside of the gown.
The circulating nurse should arrange hook and loop fixation.
The circulating nurse should tie the inner belt of the gown.
Then don gloves. After gloving, grasp the belt card with both hands, separate the left outer belt from the belt card and keep the belt in the left hand.
Hand the belt card to the circulating nurse, then make a three-fourth turn to the left while the circulating nurse extends the outer belt to its full length.
