About Product

Buy Disposable Gloves Online

Disposable gloves are used in a number of different industries including:

  • Healthcare
  • Food services
  • Manufacturing
  • Cleaning

Not only do disposable gloves provide protection to the wearer, they can also prevent cross contamination and the spread of bacteria and viruses.

Prescription Doctor offers two types of disposable gloves which you can buy online:

  • Latex Gloves – made from a natural rubber
  • Nitrile Gloves (latex free) – made from synthetic rubber

Aside from being a suitable alternative for people who are allergic or sensitive to latex, nitrile gloves are also more resilient to oils, acids and other chemicals than latex gloves. It is important to know which material would be best suited for your use case before you buy them from our online pharmacy.

However, both our nitrile and latex gloves offer protection against bacteria and viruses, and are classed as Category III personal protection equipment.

You can buy latex and nitrile gloves online from our trusted online pharmacy. When you buy disposable gloves online from Prescription Doctor, our pharmacy will package them in discreet packaging and ship them straight to your door via a next-day delivery.


What Are Disposable Gloves Used For?

Disposable gloves have a range of uses across a vast number of industries.

Most notably, disposable gloves are used in healthcare environments such as hospitals, GP practices and pharmacies to the protection they provide against infectious agents, such as bacteria, fungi and viruses, as well as bodily fluids such as blood.

For similar reasons they are also worn by people working in tattoo and piercing parlours to mitigate the risk of infection.

Manufacturing environments, particularly those which require the handling of particular caustic substances, may require the donning of personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of injury.

Cleaners may risk exposure to both micro-organisms and harmful chemicals, such as bleaching agents, requiring them to wear protective gloves before beginning shifts.

Disposable gloves are also used in food and catering services to prevent cross contamination and to increase hygiene standards when handling food.

Most recently, personal protective equipment is being used regularly to prevent the spread of Covid-19 – a virus which affects the upper respiratory tract. When used correctly, the gloves prevent those who carry the virus from passing it onto others and prevent people who do not have the virus from contracting it by touching a contaminated surface.

Whatever your use case, you can be confident when buying disposable gloves online from Prescription Doctor. Our gloves are high quality, non-powdered and easy to put on and take off. They are available in boxes of 100 (50 pairs).


How Do Disposable Gloves Protect You?

Disposable gloves act as a barrier between your hands and any contaminated or dangerous substances. They prevent chemicals, bacteria, viruses and other harmful material from coming into direct contact with your skin.

In manufacturing, they prevent the sensitive skin on your hands from coming into contact with harmful chemicals and prevent contamination. Due to the added durability and resistance to oils, nitrile gloves are preferred in some manufacturing environments.

In catering and cleaning environments, latex and nitrile gloves prevent cross contamination between surfaces. When handling foods like chillies, onions and garlic, gloves can prevent irritation caused by substances in these foods coming into contact with the skin. Cleaning chemicals, such as bleach, can similarly cause irritation. With gloves, the substances cannot reach the skin and so irritation does not occur.

Disposable gloves are not commonly used for everyday tasks however, with the current outbreak of coronavirus, people are starting to wear disposable gloves when they go out into public.

For example, when shopping for essentials, you may want to protect your hands for when you are pushing the shopping trolley and picking up items. However, please be mindful that even though you are wearing gloves, you still need to avoid touching your face. It's important to understand that disposable gloves will only provide adequate protection when used properly.

Once you are home, remove the gloves and throw them away immediately. Then carry out the recommended hand hygiene procedure of washing your hands thoroughly in soap and water for 20 seconds.

Washing your hands is one of the easiest methods for limiting the spread of coronavirus and other diseases according to the World Health Organisation.


How to safely remove disposable gloves?

Knowing how to safely remove your gloves without risking contaminating yourself is important. Caution should be taken when putting on (donning) and taking off (doffing) personal protection equipment.

Here is how you should safely remove your gloves:

  1. Pinch the outside of the glove near the wrist.
  2. Peel the glove downwards, turning it inside out.
  3. Keep pulling away the glove and hold it with your other gloved hand.
  4. With your un-gloved hand, slip your finger(s) between your wrist and the glove.
  5. Peel the glove downwards, turning the glove inside out.

If done correctly, the gloves should be together and inside out, with one glove inside the other.

You should always wash your hands before and after wearing gloves to prevent contamination.

Dispose of the gloves safely.
