    Sorry but can anyone respond to this?

    For those who are double gloving, do you apply 2 pairs of Nitrile gloves over each other and do you have any issues with this?

    We are planning on switching to the Halyard (purple) brand since it is the only one which also works for protection against Thiotepa and Carmustine but find it very challenging to apply one pair on top of the other. Staff struggle to place them and can lose dexterity.

    Thank you in advance,

    For those of you who are double-gloving for hazardous medication administration, do you apply 2 pairs of Nitrile gloves or regular gloves and Nitrile on top?

    what advice do you give staff on how to apply both pairs of Nitrile gloves?

    Do they apply their correct size and a larger one on top or try and squeeze on their correct size.

     

    Thank you in advance,
