Royal College of Nursing, 2012
Following reports of increased cases of occupational dermatitis in nurses and health care assistants, in 2010 the RCN surveyed its members on work related skin problems and glove use. Some of the key issues emerging from the survey were:

continued use of powered latex gloves, when powdered alternatives are available
extensive use of non-powdered latex gloves
22% of respondents reported skin probelms on their hands that have been confirmed as work-related
a lack of health surveillance/skin checks to look for signs of skin problems on hands
variations in practice associates with glove use including compliance and non-compliance with current best practice guidance on appropriate occasions for glove use
22% of respondents were unaware of their employers policy on glove use.
