Hey there good morning! Here is my summary of somebody else’s two cents on aseptic surgery technique. I did not cover the whole lot. I took what i thought was most helpful for everyone in GP and trimmed all the fat that I know nobody wants to eat.
First, Danielle Browning LVMT, VTS from the University of Tennessee says the following, “hair collects bacteria and shedding of hair has been associated with SSI (surgical site infection) rates.”
∴ Please wear a hair net where necessary. Beards and head.
“Face masks are used to keep airborne saliva and facial hair out of wounds.”
∴ Please wear masks!
Always wear a NEW, well-fitted mask for each surgery. Recycling surgical masks defeats the purpose of protection.
If your glasses get foggy or your mask won’t stay in place, “medical tape can be used on the bridge of the nose to keep the mask in place or to avoid fogging of any eyeglass lenses.” Always wear a mask if there are surgical packs open. Bacteria takes any opportunity to infect.
Heavy make-up that may flake off into the surgical field, artificial nails, and jewelry should not be worn in surgery. You’re all pretty anyway!
If you have any tips of your own not mentioned here, place them in the comments section.
Have a great Sunday!
