Review: SemperCare Tender Touch Nitrile Exam Gloves

About our reviewer, Kelly LamkinI have been in EMS for 21+ years. During that time I have been a medic for 17 years and I have worked as a career fire/medic for 5 years. While with the fire department I achieved the level of lieutenant. Currently I working as a chase medic in both Lancaster and Chester Counties (PA). I love prehospital medicine and all that goes along with it except the crazy long hours. For that reason I have decided to go back to school and I will be finishing my RN by the end of 2013. 

"Compared to other Nitrile gloves I have used in the past, the SemperCare Tender Touch Nitrile Exam Gloves are very comfortable and provide the needed sensitivity for patient exams. However, they are not suited for the rugged environment of pre-hospital emergency medical services. I noticed that on multiple occasions I would look down and see a tear in the glove. I believe they are best suited hospital and doctors office environments."

We agree that these gloves are doctors-office-type gloves, with a name like "Tender Touch". Here are some more specific details.

Sempermed has delivered the right combination of fit, feel, tactile sensitivity, strength and value in a latex-free exam glove.
