    Hi! There are some nicer chemo gowns with a thumb hole that we recently got that work better for IT chemo. We have chemo grade sterile gloves. Technically our policy is double glove but it gets a bit hard for me to feel when I have two pairs on…

    We are looking at our PPE process for APPs administering IT chemo in special procedures. What do your staff wear for PPE when administering IT chemo? Has there been any concern with entering the sterile field with a chemo gown on? Do they double glove using sterile gloves?
