Patient hygiene is crucial but the traditional basin can harbour harmful germs and bacteria.
RESTORE 10 DAY HAND CARE CHALLENGE
Medline invites nurses to take the challenge and experience a different type of glove.
News and Events
Two professional journals have recently featured articles on Medline’s study into the effects of frequent handwashing and wearing gloves. Hand hygiene and handwashing and glove compliance are vital for safety in a medical facility, but 94 per cent of nurses surveyed reported hand irritation and 66 per cent said that this irritation decreased their job satisfaction. To combat this problem, Medline introduced the Restore glove, which is coated with colloidal oatmeal on the inside and helps maintain the skin’s moisture and prevent conditions associated with dry skin.
Becker’s ASC Review mentioned the key statistics from Medline’s study and included a link to the white paper, which features Restore.
In addition, the European Cleaning Journal, which targets senior-level decision makers in the European cleaning industry, also published an article highlighting the findings from Medline’s study and emphasised Medline’s commitment to improving job satisfaction and health through its gloves.
