Powder Free Vinyl Gloves for Many Uses
As a medical health professional working in a hospital, clinical, or home health setting, it is important to have the correct supplies with you at all times. One way to cut the costs of medical supplies is to use the right type of examination glove for the right task. Powder free vinyl gloves are a great multipurpose type of glove that provides a good level of protection in a variety of situations while avoiding the cost of using more expensive latex or nitrile glove options.
Powder free vinyl gloves are great for everyday use in almost every aspect of health care. The exception to this statement is in high risk types of procedures or working with specific types of materials. Performing surgeries and working with high-risk patients where body fluid contamination is a concern is not recommended when using either powdered or powder free vinyl gloves. This is because these very lightweight gloves are not designed to be puncture and tear resistant, and are very easily damaged on sharp surfaces. This means that handling surgical equipment and tools is likely to cause a puncture or cut in the gloves, causing increased risk to sterile environments as well as staff.
Powder free vinyl gloves are easy to take off and on, and can be worn for long periods of time without any irritation to the skin. Since they contain absolutely none of the rubber protein or the powder that is the cause of most skin irritations with latex gloves, they are well tolerated by almost anyone. While they are not tight on the skin like latex and nitrile, they do have natural elasticity and with the right size, are a very comfortable fit. Keeping these gloves close to the skin with the correct size also helps to reduce puncture and tear risk with any type of use.
Powder free vinyl gloves are found in most examination rooms, since they are very non-irritating and are also very low cost. Sold by the box, these gloves are incredible inexpensive when compared to any other option. Boxes tend to range in size from 100 to 1000 single gloves per box. They do come in a variety of sizes from small to extra large. Most hospitals and clinical settings keep a range of sizes in each examination room. They can be general use or sterile, so knowing just what you want in the exam room is important.
These gloves are idea for working with patients or general care of patient rooms and medical equipment. They are designed to be disposable after each use,so cross contamination is not a concern. With a looser fit than nitrile or latex gloves, powder free vinyl gloves don't tend to cause moisture build up in the gloves, making them comfortable for longer wear times. These are great for handling food, cleaning or just providing a bit of extra protection for yourself and your patients. Powder free vinyl gloves can also be used when bathing and tending to patients, especially if you are treating skin conditions on patients or if you have a scratch or cut that you want to protect.
