Compliance of surgeons and nurses in scrubbing time before surgery
AbstractThis study was carried out to investigate the compliance of surgeons and nurses in performing sufficiently long scrubbing in two hospitals of the Royal Medical Services of the Jordanian Army. Fifty subjects [30 surgeons and 20 nurses] were examined. It was found that none of the subjects complied with the rules concerning scrubbing technique and scrubbing time. The average time for each subject was about 1.5 minutes. Student t-test showed that there was no significant difference [t = 0.897; P > 0.1] in the mean scrubbing time between surgeons and nurses
