Wearing gloves after hand-washing reduces infection risks in NICUs

NANN SmartBrief | Aug 14, 2014

Among extremely premature infants treated in a neonatal intensive care unit, those who were cared for by medical personnel who wore gloves after washing their hands had fewer cases of necrotizing enterocolitis compared with the group cared for by staff who only washed their hands, a study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics found. Wearing gloves after hand-washing also was associated with reduced rates of gram-positive bloodstream infections and central line-associated bloodstream infections. HealthDay News (08/11)
