AORN, APIC and CDC recommend using surgical clippers to remove hair from a surgical site. Surgical clipper manufacturers recommend using medical tape to remove hair remnants, for a large surgical site this can be a tedious and expensive task. The new Medicus Health Pre-Op Glove has an adhesive back to pick up all the tiny hair remnants and lint from the patients skin in one easy step. According to the company, features of the glove include:
- The ability to help prevent surgical site infections by removing the tiny hair remnants that can harbor bacteria.
- Mess-free disposal after use by simply turning the glove inside out.
- A large 7” L x 5-1/2” W one-sided adhesive surface area to help increase hair removal efficiency and save money on expensive medical tape.
