Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Sterile gloves must be worn for each of these procedures except:

    • A.

      Urinary Catheterization

    • B.

      Tracheostomy dressing change

    • C.

      Postpartum perineal care

    • D.

      Central line dressing change

    Correct Answer
    C. Postpartum perineal care
    Explanation
    Perineal care does not require a sterile field, or sterile gloves. The nurse should wear clean non-sterile gloves to provide personal care to a patient due to the risk of contamination with body fluids.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which of the following would require the nurse put on a new pair of sterile gloves?

    • A.

      Picking up unused gauze from the central line dressing tray and dropping it on the table

    • B.

      Grasping the patients gown to move it out of the way

    • C.

      Tucking a drape under the patients hips using the inside of the drape cuff

    • D.

      Arranging the sterile supplies on the center of the sterile field

    Correct Answer
    B. Grasping the patients gown to move it out of the way
    Explanation
    Touching the patient gown, bed-rails, or other non-sterile items will require the nurse to put on a new pair of sterile gloves. Dropping gauze off the sterile field make the gauze unsterile, but does not contaminate the gloves as long as the nurse does not pick it back up, keeping the gloved hands "inside" the drape cuff allows placement of the drape without contaminating the gloves, same as organizing the sterile supplies inside the sterile field.

  • 3. 

    The outer boarder of the paper wrapper that holds the sterile gloves:

    • A.

      Is the preferred place to rest your sterile instruments so that can be picked up easily.

    • B.

      Is sterile, because it was inside the package with the gloves

    • C.

      Should extend over the edge of the table so the nurse won't touch the table by accident

    • D.

      Is not sterile 1 inch all the way around

    Correct Answer
    D. Is not sterile 1 inch all the way around
    Explanation
    The 1 inch boarder of the sterile wrapper is considered contaminated - and can be touched before gloving to center the wrapper on the table, but should not be touched after the sterile gloves are donned.

  • 5. 

    To doff (remove) used sterile gloves the nurse should:

    • A.

      Pull both off from the inside edge, the nurse will wash their hands afterwards, so touching the gloves is not a concern.

    • B.

      Wash the gloved hands with soap and water before removing the gloves to remove blood or body fluids

    • C.

      Pull off the first glove by grasping slightly back from the wrist, turning it inside out, and wading the dirty glove into the still gloved hand.

    • D.

      Use clean tongs from the procedure tray to take them off so that the hands are not contaminated

    Correct Answer
    C. Pull off the first glove by grasping slightly back from the wrist, turning it inside out, and wading the dirty glove into the still gloved hand.
    Explanation
    The first glove is removed by pinching near the wrist on the outside of the glove, wading the now "inside out" glove into the still gloved hand. The second glove is removed by slipping a finger inside the wrist and turning the glove inside out, keeping the first glove contained in the second, so that the nurses bare finger does not touch the outside of the contaminated glove.
