Why use disposable gloves?

Effective hand hygiene and the use of appropriate medical devices, such as nitrile gloves, can help reduce the spread of infection and prevent cross contamination between patients and health professionals when applied, removed and disposed of correctly and in-line with local protocol.

When to use disposable gloves?

Our Nitrile Medical Examination Gloves are medical devices, and designed to protect the patient, by reducing the spread of infection and the risk of cross contamination.

According to the Royal College of Nursing disposable gloves must be used by the healthcare professional when:

  • When anticipating contact with blood or another bodily fluid.
  • As part of transmission-based precautions (contact, airborne or droplet precautions) where local policy required this.
  • When anticipating contact with chemical hazards, e.g. disinfectants/preserving agents.
  • When handling sharps or contaminated devices (Loveday et al, 2014).
  • When undertaking an aseptic non-touch technique procedure – sterile/non-sterile gloves chosen in line with procedure and local policy.
