To remove gloves without spreading germs, never touch your skin with the outside of either glove. Follow these steps:
Before putting on gloves, wash and dry your hands well. Cover scratches or scrapes with bandages.
Wear gloves whenever contact is possible with blood, all body fluids and substances (except sweat), broken skin, or mucous membranes.
Wear gloves when touching any item or area that may be contaminated.
Avoid touching uncontaminated items with contaminated gloves.
Remove gloves right after use. Wash hands and put on clean gloves between patients and procedures. Do not reuse disposable gloves.
