Changing the sterile field after sterile water is spilled on it.-a sterile field is considered contaminated when it becomes wet. moisture can act as a wick, allowing microorganisms to contaminate the field. the outside of containers, such as sterile saline bottles, arent sterile. the containers should be opened before sterile gloves are put on and the solution poured over the sterile dressings placed in a sterile basin. wounds should be cleaned from the most contaminated area to the least contaminated areafor example, from the center outward. the outer inch of a sterile field shouldnt be considered sterile.
