Gloves help protect your health and the health of the person you're caring for. But after gloves have been used, they can spread germs between people or to surfaces they come into contact with. So it's important to remove your disposable gloves safely.
Be sure any soiled material stays inside that glove.
Slide one or two bare fingers inside the other glove. Make sure that the bare fingers don't touch the outside of the glove.
The first glove will be inside the second glove.
