Points for Attention when Using Sterilized Latex Examination Gloves

During the epidemic period, the hospital will issue sterilized latex examination gloves to nurses and doctors to protect our hands, but sometimes even if we wear medical nitrile gloves, if we don't pay attention to the correct use, it will also cause damage to our medical staff's hands.

Points for Attention when Using Sterilized Latex Examination Gloves

1. Pay attention to dangerous drugs

There are many drugs that often cause damage to sterilized latex examination gloves made of some materials. If this is a dangerous drug, the degradation of gloves will lead to human exposure to infectious substances. The drugs that may degrade and penetrate gloves include glutaraldehyde, formaldehyde, xylene, hypochlorite solution, alcohol, chemotherapeutic drugs, oil, petroleum ointment, nonpolymeric bone cement and many other disinfectants, bactericides and general chemicals, so it is best to wear double gloves when meeting these drugs. You can also choose some nitrile gloves with stable chemical properties and strong corrosion resistance.

2. Pay attention to glassware

Sterilized latex examination gloves can also affect the safety of use. Sharp tools, glass tubes, vacuum bottles and metal instruments may slip, especially when the sterilized latex examination gloves are wet, which increases the risk of gloves being broken during the treatment of patients, leading to the spread of infection sources. The use of gloves with mesh and no lubricant can make the grip more secure. The anti-skid design of glove working face can also be purchased to improve the safety during operation.

3. Pay attention to sticky things

When the adhesive tape, trademark, ECG or other sticky substances stick to the gloves and are not easy to remove, it will also damage the protective barrier of the gloves. At this time, the strong removal will tear the gloves, which should be paid attention to.

4. Pay attention to your long nails and jewelry

Long nails and jewelry are not only a "safe haven" for the source of infection, they can also puncture gloves. When wearing sterilized latex examination gloves, you should manicure and remove jewelry. Artificial nails will bring a lot of trouble. Even after effective scrubbing, it is not easy to remove the fungi and bacteria left in the nails. Artificial nails may hook the gloves and make it more difficult to wear gloves. At this time in the selection of protective gloves should have good tensile strength and wear resistance, not easy to damage.

As long as the sterilized latex examination gloves are properly selected and used, the risk of daily cross infection between patients and medical staff can be reduced. Many related factors should be paid attention to. Once gloves with proper protective function are selected, they should be properly kept and used with care. The increase of nosocomial infection rate is not only related to the damage of protective barrier of gloves, but also related to the presence of dust, chemicals, cross contact pollution and wrong handling of gloves, The correct choice and use of sterilized latex examination gloves can reduce the hospital infection rate.
