Disposable Gloves Changing Frequency
Using disposable gloves in a medical setting to prevent healthcare professionals and patients from the spread of germs, viruses, and other harmful substances is essential. Gloves significantly reduce the risk of cross-infection as well. To maintain protection, it is essential to change gloves regularly. Here are a few guidelines to help you know when to change gloves:
Never use the same gloves for different tasks or procedures. Especially when dealing with patients, always remember to change gloves.
Regularly check your gloves for punctures. If the gloves are damaged, ripped, or torn, you should change to a new pair of gloves.
Safely dispose of used gloves and ensure no contamination occurs.
Be sure to wash your hands before and after glove use.
