74 Handwashing prior to putting on gloves to handle animals – What best describes your view on this practice? 41% 52% 6% 1% Reduces level of microorganisms on the hand thus minimizes the risk of spread of microorganisms if holes in gloves. Unless goal is to reduce risk of contamination of animals with human/environmental commensals, little real value. Hands can be readily contaminated with animal infectious agents prior to donning gloves, holes in gloves common making this a risk of contaminant transmission. Gloves not necessary for most manipulations, so handwashing/use of disinfectants only needed.
