  • Description: Data from an experiment to see how an educational program on the importance of using gloves affected the rate of glove use by a group of nurses in an inner-city pediatric hospital emergency department. Without their knowledge, the nurses were observed during vascular access procedures before and one, two, and five months after an educational program to see how often they wore gloves. Each procedure by a nurse was counted as a separate observation.
