Optimizing safety for both clinicians and patients is probably at the top of your to-do list, right? As you know, the field of healthcare has always thrived on its ability to evolve and adopt new technologies, advancements, and best practices. Surgical gloving is no different.
This webinar discusses how recent surgical glove innovations and current best practices are helping operating rooms transition from older gloving practices to newer, safer ones. As members of the healthcare industry, it’s important to continue to educate ourselves and others about the added benefits that can come from embracing change—such as switching to all synthetic surgical gloves and double-gloving with colored indicator undergloves.
Upon completion of this continuing education activity, the participant should be able to:
- Discuss the potential risks that come with using latex and sharps in the OR and describe why switching to synthetic gloves and double-gloving are best-demonstrated safety practices.
- Discuss case study examples from two different facilities, sharing information about why they choose to remove latex from their ORs and the benefits they realized.
- Describe recommendations from numerous health safety authorities about using synthetic gloves and double-gloving.
- Discuss how switching to either of these surgical glove best practices can impact safety and costs in a facility.
