Troubleshooting Guide for Medical Gloves
Have you encountered a problem? We can guide you to the solution.
|Tears and punctures||Gloves too thin or material not suitable for the task. Remove jewelry.||
Try thicker gloves. For example, going from 3 mil to 5 mil thick. Try another material. For example, switching from vinyl to nitrile.
Medical gloves do not protect against cuts.
|Pinching of the skin, excessive hand sweating, excessive stretching of the material and limited dexterity.||
Your gloves are too tight.
Try a larger glove size.
Try nitrile or vinyl if you suspect an allergy. An antihistamine may give you relief in this case. Contact your doctor.
Consider applying an oil-free, perfume-free moisturizer on your hands at the end of the day.
|Gripping difficulty, gloves that come off.||
Your gloves are too loose.
Try gloves one size smaller.
Try more fitted gloves such as latex or nitrile.
Order gloves with textured fingers for better dexterity.
|Fatigue and ailments||Your gloves are too heavy||Try lighter gloves. Limit repetitive movements. Check if your workstation is ergonomic.|
