Hello everyone

I have been reviewing the working practices of mortuary workers and must say it is fascinating and I have lots to do.

They wear 3 pairs of gloves (PPE) when undertaking post mortems. They use Baby Powder to dry their hands before wearing the gloves and one member of staff said in her previous NHS workplace they used a barrier cream.

If the latex gloves are next to the skin or they use barrier cream  I would not think this is good practice. I would appreciate your comments. 

Regards

Lynda
