APIC creates flier on proper glove use in healthcare facilities

APIC added a new flier to its series: Do's and Don'ts for wearing gloves in healthcare settings.

APIC is aiming to help healthcare providers learn proper personal protective equipment practices. On the flier, APIC lists the types of gloves used in the healthcare setting, including sterile, non-sterile and utility gloves.   

Here are three do's:

•    Do clean hands and change gloves between each task.
•    Do ensure correct type of glove is available if you have skin sensitivity or allergy issues.
•    Do make sure that gloves fit properly before performing any tasks.

Here are three don'ts:

•    Don't substitute glove use for hand hygiene.
•    Don't use non-approved hand lotions.
•    Don't touch your face when wear gloves.
