Glove-change lapse: KTPH replies

ST Forum, 12 Dec 2015, Glove-change lapse: KTPH replies

We thank Mr Yeo Heng Ngi for highlighting the glove-change incident (“Change gloves after every patient when drawing blood”; yesterday).

The correct procedure for us is to use a fresh pair of gloves for every patient.

We apologise for the lapse and for the incorrect information given to Mr Yeo. We will tighten our procedures
for compliance.
