Your hands help to heal and save lives every day. Shouldn't they be protected too? At Mölnlycke Health Care, we think so. Double gloving is a smart, easy and effective way to prevent avoidable injuries and exposure to dangerous – and costly – contamination and infection. This is why it should be standard practice for you and the entire O.R. team.

This e-learning course presents clinical evidence generated from a number of key clinical studies which support the use of double gloving. It explains:

  • How double gloving can help to avoid injuries and exposure to cross contamination
  • The cost impact of needle stick injuries on a hospital
  • Why double gloving should be standard practise for every O.R. team
