Glove Removal Technique

Gloves are the minimum standard for patient care considering that there is always the possibility for exposure to blood and body substances.

However, proper glove removal is quite important considering that improper removal may still result to exposure.

  • Begin by partially removing one glove. Be careful to touch only the outside of the glove. You can do this by pinching the glove at the wrist and start to roll it back of the hand, inside out. Leave the exterior of the fingers on that first glove exposed.
  • Remove the second glove by pinching the exterior with the partially gloved hand.
  • Pull the second glove inside out toward the fingertips.
  • Grasp both gloves with your free hand touching only the clean, interior surface.
