Mastering Medical Accessories: When to Use Different Gloves, Richmond, Kentucky

When it comes to medical accessories, there are many reasons to choose one over the other, depending on the situation at hand. EZ Care Medical has been providing high-quality medical supplies to customers in the Kentucky area since 2005, offering everything from alarms and alerts to nurse uniforms. You'll find all varieties of gloves at EZ Care, but those unfamiliar with these medical accessories might be wondering how to choose between latex, nitrile, and vinyl gloves. 

Which gloves you use will both depend on the task itself and any allergic needs you may have yourself. Here are a few attributes of each to keep in mind when purchasing health care supplies: 

  • medical accessoriesLatex Gloves: Latex gloves are among the most natural-fitting gloves available, with a high level of touch sensitivity and a light powdering, making them easier to slip on. They're strong, biodegradable, cost-effective, and perfect for long periods of use and the handling of sensitive materials.
  • Nitrile Gloves: When allergies keep latex from being an option, alternatives such as nitrile gloves will do the trick. These gloves are made from synthetic rubber and are known for their resistance to punctures. Similar to latex gloves, they are perfect to wear for an extended amount of time and will resist many chemicals, making them ideal for handling high-risk situations. 
  • Vinyl Gloves: When high protection and durability isn't as much of a concern, vinyl gloves are also a decent latex-free alternative. While they're certainly the most economic option to date, you'll only want to use them when working with non-hazardous materials. This is why they're favored more for food industry use and less sensitive medical situations. 

Whether you need gloves, scrubs, or pretty much any other medical accessories you could imagine, EZ Care Medical has you covered. Head to the online store for more information and a full list of supplies. You can also call (859) 626-8957.
