    We have thicker gloves that are “chemo gloves” that we use.  Otherwise, we usually wear two pairs of our regular nitrile gloves for chemo administration (which are also supposed to be “chemo-safe” but we still recommend double-gloving).

    Hello,

    For chemotherapy PPE, are your RNs required to double glove prior to administering any chemotherapy?
