INtro and 20 minute again

videoAfter a practicing this and reading a lot of post, Lisa S. (THANK YOU) I realized that making a grid is useless if you don't follow it! Funny thing is that you would think that nerves would cause me to lean on it more. The opposite turned out to be true. Currently using the whiteboard to reinforce Santa like behavior. Have your list and check it twice.
Remember, No style points are awarded in the CPNE but forgetting a Critical element will earn you a fail. Good luck in studies.

As long as the site is dry and there is no evidence of body fluids, any part of the patient's body is considered clean. You can glove a million times though if you want...But having to wash before and after gloving, to me would waste a lot of time, time that you already don't have

Do you have to gel after removing gloves? Or is it ok to skip it.

Never, ever, skip the gel. The CE will fail you if you ever skip the gel after removing the gloves regardless of whether you touched any contaminated areas.
