A lot of people in the field of medicine make use of a non-latex glove as a substitute to the usual latex glove. It is understandable since the old gloves could really cause problems to some users. However, even non-latex gloves should be handled carefully too. This will avoid some problems to take place. Here are some ways in order to deal with the use of these gloves properly:
1.Do not mix it with latex gloves. Though some non-latex gloves are properly marked, some aren’t. Thus, in order to avoid problems, you have to separate them and label the containers. With this, the user will know right away what glove to pick.
2.Do not throw away all your latex gloves. Keep some in stock. Some people are still more comfortable with the old type of gloves. Thus, you should let them choose the one that they are more comfortable of. In contrary, there are those who have problems in the use of the new gloves.
3.Check the gloves before using. Even if the material used in making these gloves changed, it is still susceptible to problems. Thus, you need to double check the gloves before using any of them.
In the medical world, everything has to be dealt with properly. Even items as small as medical gloves, should be handled with care. If not, it could cause potential problems. To top it all, you have to dispose what needs disposal right after its use. Check the items on stock and see what needs to be changed and bought. You might need a medical suture soon and you don’t even know it.
