Reducing the environmental impact of gloves used in the Intensive Care Unit

This graduation project aimed to make a start towards greener ICUs. In the ICU care is delivered to critically ill patients. The number of gloves used is high because of the intensity of care and high standards. Due to its resource-intensive production and frequency of use, the use of nitrile disposable gloves was found as a hotspot. The question to be answered was; How could the environmental impact of gloves in the ICU be reduced, while remaining quality of care?
