TSA should use new gloves for EVERY PASSENGER!!!

Posted 11-23-2010 at 21:01 by Fiery Red XIII

I saw a story today, but being in healthcare, I have wondered it long before this. Agent don't change gloves from person-to-person/bag-to-bag. This is an infection risk, especially with all the "Contact Precautions" type patients seen in hospitals, nursing homes, etc. MRSA and VRE, as well as C-Diff come to mind. VERY easily spread and lives on surfaces for long times. I wonder how much trouble I'd get in to ask a screener to change gloves in front of me or sanitize them. Why are they...
