Abstract

BACKGROUND
This study purposed to analyze general hospital nurses' adherence to glove wearing on inserting peripheral intravenous catheter (PIC) and the difference factors.
METHODS
This study was conducted as a cross-sectional self-reporting survey using a structured questionnaire developed by the researcher, and involved 230 nurses working at the wards, ICUs, and recovery rooms of six general hospitals in Seoul, Gangwon-do, and Ulsan. The survey was conducted for two months from June to July 2015.
RESULTS
The mean adherence to glove wearing on inserting PIC was 10.5%, the rate of wearing glove was higher in nurses than that of 9 or more patients (t=2.319, P=.021), and the number of nurses who received infection control training was less than one (t=−3.518, P=.001). In addition, the rate of wearing glove was higher in nurses who know that they should wear gloves on insertion PIC (F=14.57, P < .001) and that they are required to wear loves when performing procedures at risk of exposure to blood or body fluids (F=4.59, P=.011) and to wear gloves when inserting a peripheral vein (F=16.03, P < .001).
CONCLUSION
In order to enhance nurses' adherence to glove wearing on inserting PIC, it is necessary to maintain the optimal ratio of nurses to patients, to execute active campaigns, to educate and to train nurses to recognize the importance and necessity of glove wearing and to change their attitude, and to develop and supply adequate gloves.
