I observe a PICC inserter who already puts on double gloves and wear sterile gown.
In the middle of the procedure, she puts a sterile bag (that comes in a PICC kit ) as the third layer of gloves to untie a tourniquet where she has to go under the max barrier to touch the pt's arm (under sterile field). Once, she unties a tourniquet, then she removes this bag. She touches only the top part that isn't touch the pt and throws the bag away. Then, she proceeds with the procedure.
Is it an unacceptable technique?
What do you think? Thanks for all the inputs.
