Following the principals of standard precautions; I would assume that the same hands in our clinical settings are carried into the office setting and for this reason I would say yes to the gloves.

Isn't protecting a staff member from cleaning chemical exposer reason enough to wear PPE? I agree--principals of standard precautions prevails!

Hi David,

Absolutely they should always follow standard precautions when cleaning anywhere. For both protection from cleaning chemicals and for protection against pathogens. Pathogens are everywhere and not just in the healthcare environment. I would also go as far to say they should be changing those gloves after every office and bathroom.
