DOUBLE DONNING GLOVES IN A STERILE ENVIRONMENT


 

While many single-use gloves offer tactility and sensitivity that workers need, there is a risk that the glove could perforate during use or become punctured when in contact with sharp objects, thus compromising the protection especially in high risk applications. The best way to increase the level of protection whilst keeping tactility and comfort is to wear two pairs of single-use gloves, also known as double donning.

 

Workers in a sterile non-surgical environment must also carefully don gloves the correct way so that they remain contamination free and ensure product integrity.

 

Please watch our video to see how to correctly double don sterile single-use gloves.
