May 24, 2021
Disposable gloves are among the most commonly used protective products. Bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, microbes, and viruses can easily move from touched objects onto your hands. Following the basic rules of hand hygiene together with the use of appropriately selected gloves protect the user, the patient, and the touched object. Examination and protective gloves are both a medical device and personal protection equipment. Their role is to protect hands and to be the first obstacle to the spread of bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants. The quality of gloves and their characteristics are determined by the restrictive and detailed guidelines described in the relevant harmonized standards and directives.
