say it does not matter. I am finding that I have been getting extremely tired since I have been working there. I read an article that says if you do handle medications that you should wear gloves. Can someone give me more insight into this dilemma? I have recently started wearing gloves now at work. I find it funny that the other employees that work there do not find it necessary.
Just for the sake of hygiene you should be wearing gloves. Personally I like a machine that does not have hygiene issues to handle my medication and know it is sterile.
I would like to know where you work that they allow their people to handle medication without gloves.
It is a health hazard to any one who has to take those meds. Each time you skin touches the medication you introduce a contaminate to the medication and if you touch more then one you have a cross contamination taking place. For some one like me that is a major threat to my health. People like you are the reason so many people have reactions to medications and end up going from med to med. Gloves are supplied on work sites for a reason and just because it doesn't hurt you the damages you do is to others. I have a sever potassium allergy and the smallest amount will blister and burn my skin. Within three days you see it on my arms and torso but the worse burns are internal and I'm a critical care heart patient. Think about that every time you work with out gloves.
