Medline Industries has introduced the Restore™ nitrile gloves, which features colloidal oatmeal incorporate as a soothing agent.

Colloidal oatmeal is a USP skin protectant drug that can protect and relieve minor skin irritation due to rashes or eczema. Medline said providers have said they would be more compliant if their hands felt better, and that 14% of respondents said they've thought about leaving the healthcare field due to damaged hands.

“More needs to be done to highlight the important link between hand hygiene compliance and skin care,” said Martie Moore, R.N., MAOM, CPHQ, chief nursing officer for Medline. “Gloves are like a second skin to healthcare workers and this innovative new glove is a simple step facilities can take to help protect its most valuable tools — the hands of staff.”
