There are some guidelines that should be followed when utilizing gloves in patient care.
• Any glove that is compromised with a puncture or tear should be changed immediately.
• Make sure neither yourself nor the patient are allergic to the powder or latex. They can cause skin rashes and irritation. If there is an allergy, you will need to change the type of gloves used.
• Remove gloves after caring for patient. Do not wear the same gloves to care for another patient. Do not touch your face, or surfaces such as light switches, door knobs, etc. This can transfer any bacteria or germs.
• Do not try to reuse the gloves by washing them.
• A thorough hand washing should always take place after the removal of the gloves.
The gloves you select should be comfortable for both you and/or the patient. If there is any chance of allergies, select gloves carefully. The gloves should fit your hands comfortably. They should not be either too loose or tight. The gloves should not tear or damage easily. Just like the incontinent containment diaper or brief, a good fit is essential.
Idiaper also offers the wall mounted holders for the boxes of gloves. These will hold the box of gloves firmly in place while you are removing the glove or gloves you need. They will always be in the same place, no hunting around for where the last person set the box down.
Once you have decided on the type of glove, if you have any questions, please call the idiaper Customer Service staff. They can answer your questions and check on product availability. They are there to assist you with product selection.
