How often should I change/dispose of gloves?
Medicom medical examination gloves are “single-use” (disposable). They should be changed or disposed of safely after each task. Healthcare personnel should change their gloves for each new patient, when moving from a contaminated part of the body to another part of the body to avoid cross-contamination, as soon as any holes/rips/punctures appear, or every 20 minutes.
Why are powder-free gloves sometimes more expensive than powdered?
Powder-free gloves can be more expensive due to the process required to remove powder coating from the glove. However, powder-free gloves cause fewer allergic reactions because they have a lower protein and chemical content. Powder-free gloves are also cleaner to use because they do not leave residue on clothing or surfaces.
