I was doing observational visits with a nurse who followed IPAC policies until she got to the improper use and cleaning of gloves. She double gloved and then once the procedure was complete she removed the top pair and sanitized the other pair with alcohol based hand sanitizer thinking this was a practical use not to waste extra gloves , but this does not promote proper hand hygiene and could potentially spread bacteria even more than changing gloves and doing proper hand hygiene
