The purpose of wearing gloves, masks & gowns is two fold. One for the protection of you, our patient, and the other for the safety of the staff treating you. Diseases can be transmitted in both directions and the items are worn for everyone's safety. Gloves are never worn than once per patient and you might even notice that we change our gloves while treating you. If they become soiled, tactile sensation is diminished and that could have a undesirable outcome. We will not sacrifice a few pennies on your safety.
