Patient hygiene is crucial but the traditional basin can harbour harmful germs and bacteria.
RESTORE 10 DAY HAND CARE CHALLENGE

News and Events
March 8 is International Women’s Day (IWD). It is a day for celebrating and promoting gender equality all around the world, and also here at Medline. This year’s theme is ‘Press for Progress’, encouraging all of us to commit to a gender parity mindset. The World Economic Forum estimates that at the current rate of progress it will take more than 200 years to achieve 100 per cent gender parity—this year’s theme aims to speed up that process.
We have started a new tradition within Medline Europe by asking our employees to pledge how they will ‘Press for Progress’ towards this important cause. The IWD’s website suggests five ways we can all commit to women’s progress.
Our employees’ pledges are visible on Medline Europe’s LinkedIn page, and Group President Tripp Amdur has personally committed to ‘challenge stereotypes and bias’ this year and beyond. Medline is proud to declare that we recognise and value the contributions of all our female employees and are committed to actively pursuing gender equality in our organisation. We invite you all to also comment on our LinkedIn page what you will do this year to promote this important cause, which is also one of the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDG 5: Gender Equality).
Medline rang in the New Year with the launch of its own surgical glove lines: Signature Latex and SensiCare PI. The addition of these nine new gloves to Medline’s existing portfolio provides healthcare professionals with a wide array of gloves to fit varying user needs and preferences, for every type of surgery. Medline takes innovation and customer needs seriously, and these gloves have been designed with the end user in mind. We are addressing issues ranging from hand fatigue to latex and accelerator allergies. To read more about our new portfolio, please click here; and for more information on Medline’s commitment to allergy reduction, please click here.
In addition, we are a resource for healthcare professionals and our goal is to keep you updated on industry knowledge and best practices. For gloves, this involves topics like double gloving, allergies, going powder free and skin irritation. Please see our Knowledge Base for further information on selecting the right gloves and skincare.
