Managing Latex Allergies in Healthcare Workers and Patients
The key to managing latex allergies and other adverse glove reactions in healthcare professionals and patients lies in correct recognition and appropriate action.
Establishing latex free and/ or powder free policies and procedures, including standard questionnaires and reporting procedures for both staff and patients, are important preventative measures that can reduce the risk of adverse glove reactions.3
Also critical is the provision of latex free gloves and chemical accelerator free gloves for staff suffering from allergies or sensitivities or caring for patients with allergies.
