Why would people double don gloves?
We recommend double donning gloves to provide extra protection. The more layers, the more protection against chemicals. Also, double donning limits the chance of penetration through pinholes. Statistically, there is a very low chance of two pinholes being in exactly the same place on two gloves. Gloves designed to work as a double-gloving system, offer operators an additional layer of protection throughout chemo preparation and administration process. By using a brightly colored underglove with a natural colored outer glove, any breach is immediately visible, giving the operator an early signal to change gloves.
