I am aware this post is several months old, but felt the need to answer. To answer your question directly, crushing the pill without gloves is not going to harm her, however, if she is crushing meds for someone else I recommend that she wear gloves and perform proper hand hygiene before and after handling medications.
Methimazole isn't a large pill, is there a reason that your wife is crushing it? I also want to inform you that methimazole is a pill that should NOT be crushed because this will alter the rate of release.

My wife thinks crushing it and sprinkle on food cause less tress to her kitty
I am fast at pills as I had a horse when young.
The vet said she could crush them but I believe your statement is correct and will change administering of the tiny pill. If my cat complains I will be in the basement again.
Thank you Jecox789
