Geisinger Study shows costs decrease, safety enhanced when hospitals, health clinics switch to powder-free latex gloves

Problems caused by latex gloves got me into the glove business 19 years ago. At that time, I developed special glove liners to protect healthcare professionals from latex allergies which we still sell today.


The conclusion to this study is not new information to us on the front lines of hand protection but we know many of you must be reminded that latex issues still exist. However, latex gloves have come along way since my Glovenaut days and the OSHA regulations regarding glove use in healthcare.


Also coincidental is that I worked with Geisinger Health Services and Hospital during my early years in the healthcare industry. To read a synopsis of the study, click on the title.


Let me know if you have a question about latex gloves. I have a file cabinet full of research information.
