Q. Can I disinfect or clean disposable gloves and reuse them?
And, should I change gloves between patients/residents?
AMDA (The Society for Post-Acute and Long Term Care Medicine) has extensive advice on shortages of masks, gloves, and other PPE on pp. 28-31 of this document. CDC’s Interim Infection Prevention and Control guidelines as well as Preparing for COVID-19 in Nursing Homes both cover PPE including gloves.
