Glove Use Policy
The impact of wearing gloves on adherence to hand hygiene policies has not been definitively established since published studies have yielded contradictory results.

Several studies found that Health Care Workers (HCWs) who wore gloves were less likely to cleanse their hands upon leaving a patient's room. In contrast, other studies found that HCWs who wore gloves were significantly more likely to cleanse their hands following patient care. Another study found that the introduction of gloves increased the overall compliance with hand hygiene.
This summary of evidence is from The WHO Guidelines on Hand Hygiene in Health Care, May 2009. The use of gloves does not replace the need for hand hygiene by either hand rubbing or hand washing. Wear gloves when it can be reasonably anticipated that contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials, mucous membranes, or non-intact skin will occur. Do not wear the same pair of gloves for the care of two patients. The reuse is not recommended.
Glove Use
Disposable gloves are recommended for two main reasons:
To reduce the risk of contamination of HCWs hands with blood and other body fluids  
To reduce the risk of spreading germs to the environment and transmission from the HCWs to the patient and vice versa, also from one patient to another  
Hand hygiene is required with glove use when:  
An indication for hand hygiene precedes a contact which requires glove usage, hand hygiene should be performed before donning gloves  
An indication for hand hygiene follows a contact that has required gloves, hand hygiene should occur after removing gloves
An indication for hand hygiene applies while the HCWs wearing gloves, and then gloves should be removed to perform hand hygiene.
