The Joint Commission Regulates the use of powdered gloves

Starting now, surveys will check for compliance with FDA ban on powdered gloves

The ban on the use of powdered gloves was noted in the Dec. 19, 2016, Federal Register notice. It noted that powdered surgeon’s gloves, powdered patient examination gloves and absorbable powder for lubricating surgeon gloves “present an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury and that the risk cannot be corrected or eliminated by labeling or a change in labeling.”
