Using personal protective equipment for rescue safety


Exam gloves come in three common types: latex, nitrile, and vinyl. Many people develop allergies to the protein found in latex; nitrile and vinyl are much more hypoallergenic.

Per World Health Organization guidelines, using gloves doesn’t mean you can ignore hand hygiene. Contamination can happen via glove defects or while removing soiled gloves. Whenever possible, wash your hands before and after wearing gloves.
