The animation was created in response to reports indicating that gloves are often misused in healthcare facilities, potentially contributing to the spread of infections. It incorporates up-to-date guidelines and recommendations, addressing common misconceptions and pitfalls that can lead to improper glove use, such as using gloves as a substitute for hand hygiene or failing to change them between patient interactions.
Gloves are not required for touching patients, moving patients from one place to another helping them to wash or dress taking temperatures and blood pressures, administering drugs, giving injections or for simple clinical examination.
HIS encourage healthcare institutions to utilise this resource as part of their ongoing training and education efforts to drive positive change in healthcare hygiene practices.
The animation is available to download through vimeo.
