Are the gloves in my catheter kit sterile?
The answer depends on the brand of your catheter supplies. Some brands of catheter kits may include a pair of sterile gloves, which means they are sterilized during the manufacturing process.
Other brands may include non-sterile gloves. The good news is that even non-sterile gloves are suitable for contact with body fluids. The FDA highly regulates them, and wearing gloves may help reduce cross-contaminations.
