Gloves For High-Level Disinfectants

Q: What type of gloves should be worn when working with glutaraldehyde-based, high-level disinfectants for minor handling, such as removing instruments, and for major handling, such as cleaning instruments?

A: In both of these situations, a utility-type glove, such as thick rubber gloves sold in grocery stores, should be worn. These can be washed and worn again repeatedly until they are torn.
