When should one wash hands?

When should one wash hands?

Handwashing should be done at the beginning of the clinic session and soon after removal of gloves. 
One of the reasons to wash hands after removal of gloves is to reduce bacterial counts that build up on the skin during glove use. 

Handwashing also helps remove glove related materials on the skin including corn starch; other powders that are used in the gloves for easy donning hat have the potential to cause sensitization or skin irritation.
