It's like Fix-a-Flat for Nurses

Since I know at least two of my readers are full-time nurses (well, more than two considering the "silent majority" drug to the computer on every shift my mom works), I figured this New Scientist article on a new type of surgical glove might be interesting. Disinfectant built in, should cut risk of infection by a factor of 15.

One in three nurses injured by a needle stick? What the hell are these people doing that their odds are so bad?
Personally, I'd rather just practice nursing safely than to have yet another product to choose from.
Also, my hospital is a latex-free facility. I guess this totally doesn't apply to me.
